W. Va. Teacher Suspended Over Facebook Post
A Parkersburg South High School teacher has been suspended following a Facebook post he made regarding the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance student club.
Wood County Schools Superintendent Pat Law tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel that David Foggin was suspended on Tuesday for four days.
Law says the Wood County school board will decide whether the suspension is paid or unpaid, or whether to make any changes.
The newspaper says Foggin posted an image on Facebook of a poster advertising the club’s meetings, along with a comment stating, "We are also considering a drunks-t totaller club, drugged/sober club, smokeless tobacco vs smokes club, street racing, and deer poaching clubs.’’
A telephone listing for Foggin in the Parkersburg area couldn’t be found. He declined to comment to the newspaper on Monday.
