So are government schools obligated to hire ex-cons or be accused of discrimination? Must they hire all people regardless of their behavior "orientations?"

Maybe local fire departments shouldn't discriminate against piromanics. Maybe the police department shouldn't discriminate against the mentally ill or just the ill-tempered. Perhaps we should remove public funds from PBS for discriminating against the mute as program moderators. No funds for music programs that discriminate against the tone deaf. And all public transportation organizations should hire the blind and the disabled to drive their vehicles or face charges of discrimination.

Can you distinguish between ability-based hiring and requiring people be things unrelated to the job?
