ACLU: Wichita schools disciplined teacher over Facebook post


WICHITA, Kan. — A civil rights group says a Wichita teacher who posted on Facebook about her concern over school reopening procedures was wrongly disciplined by the district.

The Wichita Eagle reports the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas has asked the Wichita school district in a letter to rescind the reprimand. The ACLU says it is defending the teacher’s First Amendment rights. A school district spokesperson says it respects the teacher’s right to publicize views on their own time in a manner consistent with the district’s policies.

The teacher had posted the video showing that the thermometer at a temperature check was not working properly.
