Two teachers accused of harassing a student because of his perceived sexual orientation have been put on leave from the Anoka-Hennepin School District.
District officials say they could not explain why Diane Cleveland and Walter Filson were placed on leave, due to privacy rules. They wouldn’t comment on who approved their leave and whether it was paid administrative leave or not.
Student Alex Merritt, 17, says teachers Cleveland and Filson made countless comments about his sexual orientation.
