Teacher Forced To Resign

A former substitute teacher in Washington D.C., Charles Armstley, is suing the District of Columbia school board because he claims that he was forced to resign from his substitute teaching position.

Charles Armstley's lawyer explained to the school board that his client's forced resignation has placed such a negative light on his career that he's having difficulties finding a teaching position in other school districts.

Armstley was quoted in a DC paper saying, "I've been forced to leave what I love because of the way I look and because of what I use to believe in. Yes, I was a member of a racist organization, but that was way back in 1998, and since then I have changed my outlook on life; I no linger take part in hate crimes, and I haven't said a racial slur in months. I use to fail students who were not Caucasian, but that is all in my past, and the school board needs to move on and and not discriminate against a man because of his past".

The school board argues that Armstley's appearance is a problem with the district because it has caused students to not show up for his classes when he substitutes. Here is a photo of Mr. Armstley that the board has supplied the paper:

Armstley's lawyer is upset at the photo because he claims that, "The photo of my client is an outrage because he wears a top hat in class that covers the tattoos on his eyebrows, and a turtleneck during the winter that covers up the nazi tattoo on his neck which he is a shamed of. That photo is an injustice. Unless a student sees my client smoking a cigarette between class periods he/she will never see many of his tats."

The previous record holder used egg whites to keep the mustache stiff, but you won't believe what Kenny uses to keep his crow bar stiff. Kenny actually uses horse seaman to keep the mustache stiff.
