Georgia Teacher Accused of Putting a 'Hit' on Student

I haven't posted in a long time, but maybe it's time I get busy again. There has been a lot going on, especially since the election last year. Here's a new story from Fox News: Georgia Teacher Accused of Putting a 'Hit' on Student.
According to the article:

Forde’s attorney, Borquaye Thomas, said his client asked the student if he was gay after seeing the boy dance inappropriately with another male student, the newspaper said.

The student didn’t seem to have a problem with the question until he got into trouble for another incident, according to the Journal-Constitution.

"All of the students knew Mr. Forde was joking. The other students said Mr. Forde always plays around with them like that," Thomas told the paper. "The student only complained after he was getting suspended."

I have a feeling that this whole thing is being blown out of proportion by the student, but the teacher must be a complete fool if he was indeed "joking" in this manner. We'll have to see how this plays out before making any final judgment.

I've seen some very troubling news articles recently regarding the condition of government schools and I may post some here later this week.

If you're reading this and you're new to my blog, then welcome. If you've been here before, then thanks for stopping by again.

God bless.
