A lawyer for the parents and teacher of an Oglethorpe Avenue Elementary School fifth-grader whose pro-LGBTQ artwork was removed from a classroom has called for the principal and vice principal to be fired.
Among them: both a public and private apology from vice principal Sandra Scott, who allegedly compared the rainbow flag drawing labeled “Gay is OK” to a Nazi flag, and principal Bipul Singh; a mural designed by the student and painted by an artist chosen by Athens Pride inside the school building; sensitivity training; policy changes; a commendation for the teacher and for both administrators to be terminated.
Clarke County School District spokesperson Beth Moore said that CCSD would issue a statement on Tuesday.
