Marion County Teacher Suing School District

A teacher in Marion County is suing the Marion County school district claiming her first amendment rights were violated according to a lawsuit.

English teacher Emily Bourque made a Facebook post about George Floyd and Black Lives Matter.

In the lawsuit, Bourque claims her now-deleted post, caused her suspension and reassignment to an alternative school due to the post receiving negative pushback.

The suit calls for compensation for her  ‘suffered substantial damage.’

We have reached out to Dr. Griffith for comment, but he was not available to speak at that time.
