RE: Math teacher loses job after defending Western Civilization
"she was informed that her teaching contract at Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, a private K-12 school, would not be renewed."
State laws do not govern the tenure process at private schools UNLESS a contract between a private school district and a teacher may provide tenure rights, though enforcement of these rights is related to the contract rights rather than rights granted through the state tenure statute.. The school was within their right not to renew the contract at their discretion.
Let's turn the tables a little bit here. Let’s say you work as a teacher in a Catholic school in Miami and your old friend, who is gay, invites you to New York to attend his same-sex wedding. You attend and snap some photos of this happy event, which you post on Facebook. Guess what? The school can fire you for that.
Let’s say you have another friend who, along with her husband, has struggled to conceive. The couple uses in vitro fertilization and gets good news: They’re going to have a baby. You use Twitter to send a message of congratulations to your friend. Guess? YOU GIT IT! The school can fire you for that too.
Again, as cruel as this is, it might be permissible if the school is privately run and privately funded, religious or secular, etc.
