Teacher, vice principal resign over gay fable

The teacher and assistant principal at the center of a controversy around a gay fairy tale read to third graders have resigned. Teacher Omar Currie had said he would resign because he felt administrators did not support him after he read “King & King,” in which two princes fall in love and get married. He has said he read the book after a boy in his class was called gay in a derogatory way and told he was acting like a girl.
