Where are the Grown-Ups?

Just wrong. Teacher Brandee Ambrosia has resigned from a job she has held for 11 years because of harassment. Her sin? She served as the advisor to the Rocklin High School Gay Straight Alliance in Rocklin, California. (365Gay)
Ambrosia said that the school administration opposed the formation of a GSA last year. After she successfully fought to get it approved the certified history teacher's teaching assignment was changed without reason, she told the paper.

She appealed the decision to the district saying she believed the change was motivated by bias because of her role in the GSA.

The board reinstated her assignment but then this fall she was told by Principal Mike Garrison there were problems in her teaching.

She filed a grievance with the district, again citing discrimination and it was denied.

Ambrosia said she was left with no alternative but quit.

Oh yeah - and the school board considers the case closed since she resigned and will not investigate her claims. Of course they "give their permission" to pursue her claims through the State Dept. of Education's Office of Civil Rights. Mean people still suck.
