Teacher Under Investigation For Showing Disney Movie In Class

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A teacher in Florida showed a Disney movie to her 5th graders and now she is being investigated by the state. Strange World is an animated movie. It features Disney’s first openly gay character. The complaint relates to the controversial Don’t Say Gay law that limits conversation about gender identity and sexual orientation.

The teacher thinks one specific board member has it out for her. That board member has a daughter in the class who saw the movie. Here’s the twist: the board member, and all other class parents, signed a permission slip to allow their kids to watch PG rated movies, which this move is rated. What’s going on here?
