I heard on the news that NW Classen fired Joe Quigley, quite possibly due to his continued support and advocacy for LGBT students and the Gay/Straight Alliance.

I am NOT looking to start a morality war on this board. My ONLY question is - is 'sexual orientation' a protected status with the Oklahoma State Board of Education?

Again - I am NOT looking to start a morality war with several posts regarding anyone's opinion, I just want this question answered.

Thank you.
