Jenye "Viki" Knox, the Union Township High School special ed teacher who made waves last year by allegedly posting anti-gay remarks on her Facebook page, is back in the news.
Knox, 50, is reportedly looking to retire on a disability pension rather than face tenure charges.
According to NJ.com:
The tenure charge case was to begin Tuesday [May 15] before a state Administrative Law Judge, but Knox filed a motion earlier this month asking that it be delayed while she seeks a disability pension due to both a back injury and "psychological grounds." She did not elaborate. A judge Wednesday agreed to list the case as inactive for three months.
As , Knox was being investigated for comments she allegedly made on Facebook calling homosexuality "perverted." Knox also blasted nearby communities that are perceived as being gay-friendly.
According to mycentraljersey.com, Knox also wrote on Facebook:
“Union is not South Orange/Maplewood where one out of four families consist of two Mommies or daddies. … Why parade your unnatural immoral behaviors before the rest of us? I/we do not have to accept anything, anyone, any behavior or any choices! I do not have to tolerate anything others wish to do.”
