I think if she has the degree that it is discrimination against her, if the school doesn't let her teacher. Shame on the school!!! Give her job & let her teacher.She just wants to pay bills like any of us. Call the ACLU,& file a complaint against the school. Go Lady & Don't give up. It's her life & let her live it's THANKS CHARLOTTE

This just shows how stupid too many people on OK are. They'd rather hurt themselves by getting rid of a very talented and qualified teacher for some BS reason instead of opening their minds to the reality of God's creation. No wonder they are a laughing stock in the rest of this country. No wonder they keep electing brainless legislators like Sally Kern.

Since there's no law protection people for their gender identity in Oklahoma, they could quite well be able to get away with this. Since there are no federal protections based on gender identity or sexual orientation, she'll have a hard time appealing as well.

I think she should wash her hands of the place and go to a school where she is valued and appreciated.
