LAFAYETTE, Colo. – An elementary school principal says she was fired for protecting children from humiliation.

Noelle Roni says she fought against a policy requiring kids to get their hands stamped if they don’t have enough money in their lunch account. She was fired from Peak to Peak Charter School in Lafayette in the fall.

“The kids are humiliated. They’re branded. It’s disrespectful. Where’s the human compassion? And these are little children,” she said.

Roni was principal for nine years before being fired. She calls it a wrongful termination, and wants her job back.

I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo. They shoot the photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the make up chair, and they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They said you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken,’

I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you are the worst.

Social media strategist lost job in Utah because school ‘didn’t want to be linked with homosexuality’

Homophones - as the writer of the article explains - are words that sound the same (homo = the same; phone = sound) but have a different meaning.
This teacher at a language school was fired after writing of homophones (and not of homosexuals or homophobes!) in a blog post. The School feared people would link it to homosexuality after reading the post.

… This is absolutely f@£%ed up!
The teacher said:
“people at this level of English … may see the ‘homo’ side and think it has something to do with gay sex.”

  • People working in a school not knowing English.
  • Homophobic people (and schools…)



They said, ‘Well, that’s foolish. You’ll never work, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not good enough,’ and I said, ‘You’re fired.’ Then my business manager said the same thing and I said, ‘You’re fired.’ I just fired everybody. Then I left my husband. You know, I was like, ‘Out, all of you.’ I couldn’t afford to have those voices near me that said, ‘You can’t do this, you’re not good enough,’ because I have too many voices inside of me that say that.
