It's obvious this man isn't cut out to be in the classroom for more reasons than one. I know for a fact there is an openly homosexual teacher at one of the two high schools in McLean. He certainly doesn't fear for his position since he speaks to his students about his partner's and his' efforts to adopt a child. Kilgore will be at the Cuccinelli fundraiser tomorrow. I'm going to try and go and see if Kilgore will discuss his thoughts on the situation.
I also wonder why they decided to drag Vince Callahan into this mess. Vince is a conservative Catholic. Must be some sort of ranking seniority status reason.
JBV, yes, Kilgore is newly elected as of last November. He is well regarded so far and word is he's the number one GOP candidate for governor in three years. I'm sure he'll handle this issue vedddy carefully.

I don't want to see homosexual students and teachers harrassed in any way. No one should have to work or attend school in a hostile atmosphere; however, there is no reason for a homosexual teacher to discuss his and his partner's efforts to adopt a child with students (just as there is no reason for a heterosexual teacher to discuss his personal/sex life with his students). Just stick to the state-mandated curriculum and cut the chatter so the kiddies can pass their high-stakes tests and pull the fat from the fire in order for teachers and administrators to keep their jobs and enable the rest of us maintain property values on our homes. Not a lot to ask as far as I'm concerned.
