DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) — A central Georgia middle school teacher will retire at the end of the school year after criticizing President Barack Obama and his supporters in front of students.
The Dublin Courier Herald reported Tuesday that city schools superintendent Chuck Ledbetter announced that Nancy Perry has also been removed from the classroom for the rest of the year. A student's parents spoke out after hearing that Perry told the class Obama is Muslim and Christians shouldn't support him.
Perry's husband is a member of the city's School Board and attended a parent-teacher conference after the parents complained. Ledbetter says school principals are required to call the superintendent if any board member asks to sit in on parent-teacher meetings. Ledbetter says the district apologizes for the teacher's husband appearing at the conference.
