Calif. Teacher Calls Gay Student Sinner
Students and teachers at a high school in California’s Inland Empire have submitted a number of complaints of antigay harassment to the Perris Union High School District, including allegations that a teacher called a lesbian student a “sinner.”
According to the allegations, a teacher at Paloma Valley High School in Menifee, Calif., wrote an S on a student’s hand and called her a sinner.
Among the other complains, a student group claims it was barred from doing an activity on honor of gay and lesbian history month, and gay senior Andrew Braham (pictured) says he was unfairly disciplined after a dispute with a classmate he claims was harassing him.
