Teacher Ousted for Saying Obama Not Christian

A Dublin, Ga., middle school teacher who in March told her students that President Barack Obama isn’t a Christian has been removed from the classroom to pave the way for her retirement at the end of the school year.

Dublin Schools Chuck Ledbetter announced the retirement of Nancy Perry early Tuesday morning, while simultaneously apologizing to students and parents for Perry’s actions.
