Breaking News: New Jersey School Board Moves to Fire Viki Knox!

 

The Star-Ledger:

The Union Township school board has filed tenure charges against Viki Knox, the high school English teacher whose anti-gay remarks on Facebook raised a firestorm over her free speech rights and her role as a public school teacher.

The board formally filed the charges against Knox in late December, a step that begins the lengthy and costly process to fire Knox, school board president Ray Perkins said. He could not comment on the findings of the district's three-month investigation of Knox's conduct.

... Knox could not immediately be reached for comment about the board's action. In September, Knox's husband spoke publicly defending her comments as expression of her religion.
