The principal of Tennessee’s Haywood High School, Dorothy Bond, has resigned following various allegations that she has told gay students they are going to Hell and pregnant students that their lives are over. The school district released a statement saying, “The Haywood County Board of Education acknowledges its student body’s right to free speech. Further, the Haywood County Board of Education strives to provide an atmosphere of tolerance and diversity while maintaining high academic standards.” (HT: Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters.)
