Anti-Gay Teacher Placed on Administrative Leave

An Indiana high school teacher whose comment that she believes gays have no purpose in life has been suspended amid tighter security at her school.

Superintendent Mark Baker of the Northeast School Corp. in western Indiana’s Sullivan County issued a statement Wednesday saying the teacher has been placed on administrative leave and that state and local police are stationing officers at North Central Junior-Senior High School as a precaution because of “aggressive” email messages sent to the school and the teacher.

Baker did not identify the teacher, but special education teacher Diana Medley’s comments were met with widespread criticism amid news coverage of an alternative prom dance at a nearby school that would ban gay students.
