APEX, N.C. -- A North Carolina middle-school teacher who was suspended after complaining on her Facebook page that Christian students subjected her to a "hate crime" has been moved out of the classroom.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that Melissa Hussain was reassigned last month to become the Wake County school district's coordinating teacher for middle school science. Neither she nor a spokesman for the district would discuss the transfer.
Hussain was suspended with pay in February following complaints from parents about comments on the teacher's Facebook page.
Hussain wrote on the social-networking site that it was a "hate crime" that her eighth-grade students anonymously left a Bible on her desk. She said she wouldn't let the incident go unpunished.
