JULY 21--A New York woman claims that she was forced from her teaching post by an elementary school principal who objected to her Republican activism and last year ordered the removal of a portrait of President George W. Bush from the educator's Long Island classroom. In a federal discrimination lawsuit, Jillian Caruso, 26, claims that she was improperly forced to resign her job by Birch Lane Elementary School principal Joyce Becker-Seddio, the wife of state Assemblyman Frank Seddio, a Brooklyn Democrat.Amazing! You know, I wouldn't be surprised if that was exactly why this teacher was fired. You'd be surprised at the reactions one gets when expressing any views other than liberal in a public education classroom. I've had many a strange stares and glances when I've "slipped" and actually told the truth some some of the teachers at my kid's school. It is nice to know that there are SOME conservative teachers out there.
