Stacy Bailey was allegedly barred from her classroom at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School in Arlington, Texas after being accused by a parent of spreading her “homosexual agenda.”

According to a report by the Texas Tribune, Bailey has been an art teacher at the elementary school for over a decade but has not been in the classroom since December. Instead, Bailey teaching high school students at Mansfield’s Lake Ridge High school.

Bailey’s attorney Jason Smith believes that the new position is an attempt to frustrate Bailey and encourage her resignation.

“Stacy’s new position comes with a much greater workload and learning curve given her the only experience has been with elementary school students,” Smith said.

The stream of complaints began when Bailey showed her students a photo of her and her wife’s fish costumes from the Disney movie “Finding Nemo.” The next complaint, which resulted in Bailey being placed on administrative leave, was due to Bailey teaching her students about gay artist Jasper Johns.

According to records obtained by Star-Telegram, one issue a parent had was during one of Bailey’s slideshow presentations about two gay artists. During the presentation, a fourth-grade student said “eew,” and the records indicate that Bailey tried to explain why the comment was disrespectful. The artists’ backgrounds were included in the lesson to show how art is influenced by life.

One of the parents stated, “She said the artists are gay. A student said ‘eew.’ The teacher said don’t say that is eew. I am gay and that hurts my feelings if you say eew,” the parent said, adding: “I am afraid the girls love the teacher so much that someday they will want to do that. Kids do what the teachers do because they respect them.”

Bailey has filed a federal lawsuit for loss of earning capacity, damage to professional reputation, and other damages, including mental anguish, emotional pain, and loss of employment benefits. Despite the pending lawsuit, Bailey will continue to teach when the school year beings on August 15.
