According to USA Today, an Ohio woman claims she was fired from her teaching posting that she'd held for 19 years because her partner's name was mentioned in her mother's obituary. "A gay teacher is fighting to get her job back after she says she was fired by a Roman Catholic high school in Ohio when her mother's obituary appeared in a newspaper with the name of her partner." read more

Do you think she'll get her job back?

I don't think she should have been let go in first place..
I do hope right prevails and she gets her job back with an apology..
