I was the one who asked the question about being comfortable with a gay male kindergarten teacher. I had gone to the school to get my child moved to another class and my request was denied and I was wondering what to do next.
However, today I got a phone call from the principal. Apparently the teacher has been made to feel uncomfortable by my statements and he feels that it is in everyone's best interest to remove my son from his class.
Earlier I would have been thrilled by this, but now I am worried I made a mistake. I cannot think of how to explain the reason for the change to my son. Even worse, the teacher I would have preferred my son to have has a full class. (Our school district caps kindergarten classes at 28 students.) The teacher my son is being moved to next week does not have a full class because some kids have been moved out. She is young, brand new, and fresh out of college. CONTINUED

The grass isn't always greener on the other side. When will people learn this simple rule of life. For the teachers sake I think you need to let the school do what they think is best, you have already called out a teacher and made them feel ill at ease. I would let it go and stop wasting the schools time.
You feel like your being punished? imagine how the teacher and his co-workers feel.
