I thought this was an interesting story. An Onio teacher is suing her school district for discrimination. She claims she has an illness that causes her to be afraid of young children.
The teacher claims the school transferred her to a middle school from a high school. She says that her illness causes vomiting, chest pains, nightmares, and high blood pressure.
Although, to read the article more, it sounds like there's more to it. Like, sending an unauthorized notice to parents about proposed cuts which could have been the reason she was transferred to a different school.
I don't know a lot about this disease she claims to have (pedophobia), but if it's a fear of "very young children," then maybe she chose the wrong profession. Are middle school students really considered to be "very young children?"
