Five nuns walk off teaching jobs after students receive LGBT organization's fliers

 | 

Last week, five nuns, teachers at Marin Catholic High School, walked off their jobs for the day after students brought in literature from an LGBT education organization.

The stickers and fliers were from GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network), a New York-based organization whose goal is to prevent bullying and harassment of sexual minority students in schools. April 17 was GLSEN's National Day of Silence, meant to bring attention to bullying of LGBT youth.
