“I’m a Christian and I don’t believe in saying things like that, especially in a school setting. Kids are so impressionable at this time and they should be able to confide in their teachers, but how can they if something like this is said?”

“I think as a teacher it’s not OK to put a personal opinion of sexual orientation out there in a school setting. Whether a kid is out there with their sexual orientation they may or not be comfortable with now, but as always it’s their choice.”

“That was probably inappropriate for a teacher to do, although everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that was over the top.”

“I think it’s atrocious. Really, his personal opinion should not have been in a school paper. We live in a country that promotes freedom of expression, that’s what our kids should know.”
