    Your teaching the kids tolerance and diversity? Oh hell no! You are suspended. What did I tell you about trying to teach kids? That`s for their parents to do, you are just a glorified baby sitter.

    Should have been told "don`t play it again" and be done with it.
    Suspension is a bit much.

    So.. They`re not allowed to hear about real world problems in the classroom. I can`t even begin to imagine how dull their debate class is.

    School administrators are scared sh*tless of possible lawsuits or angry parents (read "and their kids"), so they cave at the slightest threat and let their teachers catch the blame. Seeing as we are in an "education sucks so let`s just fire people en masse" world right now, they realize that firing or punishing teachers placates the torch carrying mob. Throw in that students aren`t stupid and see this trend, too, and I have grave doubts about education in this country.

    Logic, reason and inquisitive minds no longer run schools. Instead, it is run by fear, superstition and stupidity.

    all this teaches kids is that it is okay to bully, beat and mistreat gay people.

    you do not have to like gay people, but you do have to allow them their place in society, with equal say and rights. deny them today, someone will be denying yours tomorrow.

    this is bigotry. nothing more.

    You know, even entertaining that student`s complaint is a mistake after they watch the video. All they`re doing is reinforcing this kind of BS behaviour. Whatever happened to just shutting your trap when you`re offended?

    She did not get suspended for playing a song by a straight guy who raps about how we should be better people to one another.

    Finally, educators take a stand against sick liberal indoctrination. Teachers like this need to be banned from schools, registered as sex offenders and shunned from society. She doesn`t even understand what was so wrong about playing this disgusting song to children! Truly mentally twisted and sick woman.

    I think think it would be more appropriate to play that song than any other hip hop Niki Minaj/ Justin Beiber song.... I mean really? It`s about tolerance... Not sex, cars, money, greed, or lies (like most songs today are either explicitly about or indirectly about).

    Christian songs aren`t all that different, just change the word "baby" to "Jesus" and presto!

    How is this pro gay? It`s pro equality, pro-tolerance for diversity. It`s not asking people to be gay, is it? Only ignorant, bigoted minds would think otherwise.

    Oh yes, nothing benefits society more than creating a group of second class citizens.

    Idiot.

    good decision. a teacher should not preach any life choice to their students, they are there to educate the core classes.

    johnkelley:
    Did you listen to this or did your knee-jerk reaction smack you in the mouth? The school is trying to support diversity and tolerance, so she played a rap about a gay person`s trials. This doesn`t promote anything other than understanding. And you use the ignorant term "preaching... life choice" to describe what it`s about. We can all see where you`re coming from, you intolerant Neanderthal.
