(NPR) — For the last four years, Flint Dollar has been teaching music at Mount de Sales Academy, a Catholic school in Macon, Ga. He is, by all accounts, beloved by his students.
But Dollar won’t be leading the band or teaching the chorus in the fall. His contract was not renewed after administrators found out he plans to marry a man.
Under , employers are not prohibited from hiring or firing people on the basis of sexual orientation. Dollar is working to change that.
He says when he was hired, he was honest with school administrators about his sexual orientation. But a month ago, just as Dollar was letting his students out for summer, he was called to see the school president.
