    I covered this twice, you can easily find out what I said on just this issue. Right now the only people who know for sure why the teacher are fired are not talking, and probably should not be talking to the media. They did though offer a statement:

    "All I can say is we have procedures in place to make decisions on employment," Cunningham told FOXNews.com. "All of our procedures were followed correctly."
    Note that he clearly states that he is limited in what he can say, but he can say that the procedures where followed.

    That procedures were followed only means they filled out the proper paperwork to fire him. Something that is easy to do considering they make up and review the paperwork. Even if he was limited he could have at least said that his partisanship is not the reason why he was fired. Following the proper procedures does not necessarily mean his claims are false.

    Much like it couldn't be right either. As noted, there is only ONE SIDE to the story and that is the teacher's.

    More than likely it means a little more than that, but technically you are correct. There is a lot we do not know in regards to this story, and probably won't for some time.

    Re: Kansas Teacher Claims Conservative Views Led to Loss of Job

    Some more information from another site,

    First more on the Mr. Obama's Swearing In

    With the historic inauguration address in January, Latham decided the best way to understand what President Obama was saying would be to print out the transcript of the speech and analyze it together with his class. “[It is] easier to analyze than watching it live and trying to remember everything.” Latham said. However, Latham has been criticized for not having the speech on live in his class room. “[There were] only 15 minutes left in class when it started, they would have left for lunch in the middle of it and missed most of it. My way was more efficient.”

    And then their are these two statements,

    Latham received some heat for his political beliefs. Some of the faculty would make remarks about his political ideas, but Latham would stand strong. He had even asked the administration if his job was in danger and was told “we have no plans to non-renew you."

    Hope is not lost. It seems that the administration “forgot” to abide by Latham’s contract and perform an in class evaluation dictated by the Master Agreement. By failing to do so, the school board may have no choice but to bring Latham back.

    Source is.
    Conservative teacher doesn't fit in - Fired!

    So it appears that the District is lying in their comments.

    I do not intend to defend those who issued the termination but it not permitted for an employer to discuss personnel issues in public as it can open them up to law suits. If any court action is taken in this case then that will become public information and we will hear the other side.

    Scorn is an emotion. That is not our way.

    How does posting another article that only shows one point of view prove anything? We still have nothing more than one mans word that his firing was politically motivated.
