Stop discriminating and bullying single, pregnant teachers

Jessica Davidson, a kindergarten teacher at Caloundra Christian College, has just been fired for being unmarried when she fell pregnant.

Miss Jess has contributed so much to the development of my son and daughter as their teacher in kindergarten. I can't believe the school could fire such a wonderful teacher simply for being single and pregnant!

The school claim say that because Jess signed a "lifestyle agreement" that allows them to fire her for breaching a particular "standard" of lifestyle. 

And now, because I questioned the school's actions and started a facebook group called "I support Miss Jess", the school has started bullying my children and Jessica.

Parents should be able to have a say when we object to something like this happening in our school. This discrimination and bullying is unacceptable, not just from Caloundra College, but from any school.

I'm calling on Christian Schools Australia as a national body for Christian schools, to ensure teachers aren't discriminated against because of "lifestyle" reasons.

Sign the petition and tell Christian Schools Australia that we will not tolerate this discrimination and bullying of our teachers.

Stop discriminating and bullying teachers because of "lifestyle" reasons

Jessica Davidson, a kindergarten teacher at Caloundra Christian College, has just been fired for being unmarried when she fell pregnant.

Miss Jess has contributed so much to the development of my son and daughter as their teacher in kindergarten. I can't believe the school could sack such a wonderful teacher simply for being single and pregnant!

The school claim that it is legal because she signed a "lifestyle agreement" that allows them to fire teachers if they breach certain religious "standards".

And now, because I questioned the school's actions and started a facebook group called "I support Miss Jess", the school has started bullying my children and Jessica.

Parents should be able to have a say when we object to something like this happening in our school. This discrimination and bullying is unacceptable, not just from Caloundra College, but from any school. I'm calling on all the schools part of the Christian Schools network, to ensure teachers aren't discriminated against because of "lifestyle" reasons.

Sign the petition and tell Christian Schools Australia that we will not tolerate this discrimination and bullying of our teachers.
