An appalling attack on a writer

A high school teacher in Pennsylvania has been outed for being a romance author, bullied by parents of students for her writing. It is proof positive that bullying is not only a child's problem.

The teacher writes with a pen name, never discusses her work, doesn't bring it to school and doesn't combine her two careers, yet the parents want her fired.

This is their take on it.

Personally, I see nothing more than bullying, and small minds who can't and don't respect privacy. They should be appalled and embarrased, and at the least, the news channel needs to post an apology. What's next? Not letting our children GO to a school because the parent writes?

I'd be honored to know that I have a teacher who is published, who uses her chosen academic field in a positive manner. This is proof of a good education, not a demented mind. Quit confusing them!
