FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina teacher who compared his high school to a concentration camp in a magazine article has been suspended without pay from his job.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports (https://bit.ly/1s3IZCM) the Wake County Public School System said Fuquay-Varina High School biology teacher Ray Fournier also will be given unspecified “guidance and assistance” by school officials to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Last month, Fournier wrote a magazine article comparing the school to a concentration camp and blaming it for turning a student gay. The article encouraged Christian families to pull their children out of public schools. Fournier referred to his own job as “behind enemy lines.”

School system officials say Fournier apologized for his statements and said there will be no such incidents in the future.
