A teacher afraid of kids?

Did you hear about the Ohio teacher who is suing her school district for discrimination because she was transferred from a high school to a middle school? She claims she’s afraid of young children, so the transfer amounts to discrimination.

A teacher afraid of kids? Sounds as screwy as a journalist afraid of deadlines. Or a surgeon afraid of wearing a mask. Or a politician afraid of shaking hands. (Wait a minute, we had one of those as our assessor-treasurer!)

Now clowns . . . I can see being afraid of them. Who isn’t, right?

If you didn’t catch the teacher story, read it here.
