MI Teacher Suspended Over Song Against Gay-Bashing

Yes, meatheads are still in charge in lots of places


A Michigan-based performing arts teacher has been suspended for playing a song about being gay to her students in class.

Susan Johnson, who teaches at South Lyon's Centennial Middle School, said one of her eighth grade students asked if he could play a song in class. The tune in question was "Same Love," performed by Seattle-based hip-hop artist Macklemore and produced in support of marriage equality.
