Teacher Fired for Premarital Sex

A teacher was fired this week for what she says are unfair reasons, namely having a baby without being married.

She was a teacher at a private Christian school, which may mean they have the right to set different standards than a public school, but she is still gathering her lawyers and taking them to court with a lawsuit that charges them with discrimination.

Says the teacher, "When they let me go, they told the entire staff in a staff meeting that I had been fired and the reason why they let me go. And then they called all of my parents to my fourth-grade students and told them as well," If she was good with the children, it seems to be she ought to be able to stay on the job!

The couple sat close together with her right hand clasped in his left hand and her left arm cradling the 8-month-old daughter whose conception cost the woman her job. The couple's sin, according to her former employer, Southland Christian School in St. Cloud, Fla., is fornication -- having sex before they got married. Jarretta Hamilton and her husband of 16 months, Samuel Treftz, told TODAY's Ann Curry Monday that the termination violated federal anti-discrimination laws. In addition, they allege in a pending lawsuit, the school's principal, Jon Ennis, invaded Hamilton's privacy by telling other teachers and the parents of her students the exact reason she was fired.
