A teacher at a middle school in South Lyon, Michigan was suspended without pay for playing a rap song about being gay to her students. The teacher allowed the song “Same Love” by rapper Macklemore to be played during her eighth-grade class at the request of a student.

But another student went to the principal and complained about the song. The teacher was suspended for three days and wasn’t paid for two. Here is the Macklemore song we play called ‘Thrift Shop’

A school official said the teacher failed to follow district protocol, which requires teachers to preview taped materials and submit a form about them to a building administrator for approval.
