Code of ethics violation

Mount Dora High School (in Florida)  has removed a veteran social-studies teacher Gerald (Jerry) Buell (pictured above) from his classroom for Facebook comments critical of gay marriage. Christopher Patton, Communications Officer for Lake County Schools said that Buell was moved to administrative duties pending the results of an investigation into a suspected code of ethics violation.

On his personal Facebook account, Buell posted a reaction to New York’s passage of homosexual ‘marriage’ saying he “almost threw up.” He also referred to homosexual unions as sinful and referred to it as part of a “cesspool” of behaviors in remarks quoted by the Sentinel.

It's a good thing this guy was suspended. Being a teacher in school means setting a good example, something this teacher clearly didn't do. If you would like to support his suspension, click here to like a petition on Facebook.
