    Angry Kansas Teacher Claims Conservative Views Led to Loss of Job

    Kansas Teacher Claims Conservative Views Led to Loss of Job - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

    Tim Latham, who has spent the last 19 years teaching students American history and government, spent the past school year at a high school in Lawrence, Kan. and it appears his first year at the school will be his last.

    Latham claims it has nothing to do with his abilities as a teacher and everything to do with his conservative politics.

    Yep another sign of Hope and Change brought to you by the fine folks from the Left.

    It's to bad. His polotics sound like they had little to do with his teaching.

    I don't understand how the school can dump what sounds like a good teacher based on his political leanings?

    This all makes the assumption that the teacher is being honest and correct. If he is, then the firing was wrong, but I am going to bet there is more to the story that what this article mentions.

    I'll have to see what the school's side of the story is in this before I'll take this guy's word as gospel. I honestly don't think that personal politics belong in the classroom, regardless of your political leaning, but that's just me.

    Well damn, I guess because he claims it, it MUST be true right?

    I love how conservatives say "Wait wait, there are two sides to the Miss California Pageant, don't just to conclusions that she missed the events", but here they say the teacher is automatically telling the truth and it is the school's fault.

    ****ing hypocrites again.

    An interesting headline but there is likely more to this story. I too would like to hear the schools side. I work in a school and am a known conservative who eschews the union. I take some good natured ribbing but that is about the extent of it. Politics is more or less left at the door. I'm guessing there is an issue of insubordination at the root of this termination.

    Way to go off Topic typical Left change the subject or re-direct, I guess you missed the part about him being ask about the McCain-Palin bumper sticker.

    So I guess that I should fire the six folks who work for me because they all have Obama Bumper Sticker correct. Or does the 1st Adm only apply to you fine folks on the Left.

    Again, you don't know about his performenace, you don't know his record and you automatically jump to conclusions.

    Way to go following hypocrisy.

    You are assuming that he's telling the complete truth about the bumper sticker. Wouldn't you be interested to see what the other side of the story is with this issue or do you just automatically take this guy at his word? Personally, I'm a bit more skeptical and it has absolutely zero to do with his political views. I would feel the same way about a liberal teacher.

    Way to not answer my question, I guess you must not have read the article.
