Teacher Who Showed Controversial Film to Return to Work

KSAL StaffNovember 8, 2015

A Kansas teacher will return to work Monday after being on leave for showing a controversial anti-bullying film to his students.

Conway Springs school officials said Friday that Tom Leahy will be allowed back in the classroom with some safeguards in place. The Wichita Eagle reports Superintendent Clay Murphy would not discuss details of the safeguards and said the district would have no further comment on the matter.

Leahy is a social studies teacher at Conway Springs Middle School. He was placed on leave in mid-October after he showed students “Love Is All You Need,” a short film that depicts a fictional world in which heterosexual children are bullied by homosexual classmates.

Leahy also told the Eagle that he would no longer comment on the controversy.
