Correction: An earlier version of this story spelled "Corunna" incorrectly. It has been fixed.
The Corunna Public School District is facing a federal lawsuit after a lesbian teacher was fired. The controversy started with a Diversity Club at the high school in the small town west of Flint.
Brook Johnson was a teacher/advisor to the Diversity Club. In 2009 the club decided to put up a display in honor of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender History month. It featured photos of celebrities who had come out as gay or lesbian. It caused controversy and the school board ordered it removed.
The ACLU challenged the decision. The Corunna Board of Education changed its position and allowed the display.
The lawsuit alleges the administration then turned on Johnson, ostracizing her and then forcing her out.
