teacher fired for praying

A Sunday-school teacher and assistant special-education teacher was fired from her job at a Brooklyn elementary school for praying in the classroom.

The New York Post reports:

PS 224 assistant special-education teacher Anita Wooten-Francis, 52, claims she never hid her faith but took care not to influence kids. She worshiped in her classroom before or after students left, read the Bible on her lunch break, led other teachers in a prayer group, and played gospel music during non-instruction hours.

Wooten-Francis spent several weeks inactive as a teacher before she was fired last June. She claims that she was also teased by the school’s principal for her religious beliefs and has a filed a lawsuit in Brooklyn federal court.
