Teacher keeps job following comments


A Nevada teacher who reportedly denied the Holocaust in front of her students will not lose her job.

Lori Sublette, a gym teacher at the Northwest Career and Technical Academy, has been reassigned from work in the classroom to working at home, and continues to receive salary and benefits during a continuing school district investigation. A Nevada statute from 1967 prohibits Sublette, or any teacher, from being fired for “unprofessional conduct” unless they have previously been cited for a similar offense, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

In November, Sublette denied the Holocaust during a discussion in an advocacy class that prepares students for life after high school. She said the Nazis did not have the technology to enable them to kill millions of Jews during the Holocaust. (JTA)
