You did it: KS teacher rehired!
Great job and many thanks to all who stood up for Lawrence High School history teacher Tim Latham, whose contract wasn’t renewed due to his conservative beliefs. The pressure you put on resulted in Mr. Latham being rehired!
Mr. Latham’s response: “I couldn’t be more pleased with this outcome. While I am happy to have this behind me, and look forward to returning to LHS next fall, I will always be grateful to my students for actually putting what I teach into practice.”
I, too, am grateful to Mr. Latham’s students, several of whom created the Facebook group, Save Mr.Latham, Lawrence High History Teacher, which counts almost 2,000 members after only a few days. These students refused to stand by and let their successors at Lawrence High be deprived of, as one student put it, “…a really good teacher.”
