Middle school teacher suspended after playing rap song in support of same-sex marriage for her eighth grade class
A Detroit-area performing arts teacher has been suspended without pay last week for playing a song about being gay during class.
According to middle school teacher Susan Johnson, the principal and assistant superintendent delivered the news to her after a student complained.
Johnson said she allowed the song Same Love by the Seattle-based underground rapper Macklemore to be played during her eighth-grade class at Centennial Middle School in South Lyon at the request of a student.
Afterwards, however, another student went to the principal and complained about the song. Johnson was later informed that she would be suspended for three days, and she wouldn’t be paid for two.
