A Michigan Middle School Teacher Is Suspended For Three Days For Playing This Growing Up Gay Song In Her Classroom

Susan Johnson says this song is exactly what she thinks her students need to hear - and yet instead of praising her, the South Lyon's Centennial Middle School suspended her for three days in November 2012!

Hear Susan explain what happened:

And watch the video of the Macklemore song - by the way, Susan didn't show the video, only let her student play the song...

And here's the artist Macklemore talking about why he wrote this song, and how he believes in GLBTQ equality:

Love the video, the artist's heart, the teacher's desire to help her students and make them all feel safe...

and so frustrated that the system in Michigan is still on the wrong side.
