Children stage mass-walkout after teachers were forced to quit for being gay | Metro News
Paul Danforth and Michelle Beattie quit Kennedy Catholic High in Burien, Seattle, soon after getting engaged to their same sex partners. After hearing this, children staged a mass walk-out and many of them blocked the corridors.
They were said to have resigned ‘voluntarily’, but Paul’s fiance Sean Nyberg said he had been forced out soon after he proposed to him at Disneyland on November 1. Beattie had also recently got engaged to her same-sex partner.
After hearing their teachers were allegedly being forced out, students went into the hallways to stage a sit-in before taking their protest onto the front lawn. The school sent letters to parents describing the teachers as ‘highly capable’ but has not commented on the reasons for their sudden departures.
Young people have a completely different world view than their parents. A few parents showed up in a pro getting rid of gay teachers ‘protest’.
Students at this very conservative extremely right wing Catholic school almost universally protested against getting rid of gay teachers.
This same dynamic is playing out in the elections. Huge stadium filling crowds of younger people are showing up for Sanders, who is the opposite of the pro predatory capitalism candidates being pushed by billionaires to counter this younger generation movement.
As the older generation which is stuck in the past dies off, expect huge transformative changes as this younger generation takes its rightful place in politics, education, etc.
