Knox County Judge Upholds Firing of Teacher

Wednesday, Knox County Common Pleas Judge Otho Eyster upheld the January of 2011 firing of central Ohio public school science teacher John Freshwater. Freshwater was accused of preaching religious beliefs in class and of keeping a Bible on his desk.

In his opinion, Judge Eyster stated that he found clear and convincing evidence that the board of the Mount Vernon School where Freshwater taught was right in dismissing the teacher.

Freshwater was also accused of burning with the image of a cross into the arms of several students, however, that allegation was resolved and not a reason for his firing.

Although Freshwater's case did not resolve itself in his favor, there are extensive state and federal laws that protect workers from discriminatory treatment based on race, national origin or, in Freshwater's case, religion. Often, however, employees find themselves being treated unfairly based on their belief system, race, or ethnicity.
