A JoCo State of Mind: South Johnston High School Teacher Faces Termination for Refusing to Wear Mask

SJHS teacher Aurora Preston

FOUR OAKS – A high school teacher in Johnston County showed up for her first day back without a mask. When asked to put one on, she refused, and now she may face termination for refusing to comply with the mandate.

From WRAL:

“Aurora Preston was to start her sixth year of teaching English at South Johnston High School this week, but she’s not in the classroom after telling her principal last week that she had no plans to wear a mask.

The Johnston County Board of Education voted Aug. 10 to mandate masks in all schools as a way to limit the spread of coronavirus, which has surged across North Carolina in recent weeks.

I feel like they’re overstepping their bounds in trying to dictate things that really have nothing to do with education,” Preston said Tuesday.

That’s why she showed up for the first teacher workday last week without a mask.

“The principal walked by and said I need to wear a mask. I chuckled because I knew I wasn’t going to, and I said, ‘Perhaps we should talk about it,'” she said.

The principal told her to stay in her classroom until he could get guidance from the district office. After three hours in her room, she was told to go home, and she hasn’t been back to school since then.

Nobody had any answers. Nobody knows what to do with me,” she said. “I have the right to choose whether or not I comply. … I’m not breaking the law. I’m not telling others to break the law. I just want to adhere to my God-given rights.”

Preston said she doesn’t believe masks reduce the spread of the virus, contradicting the position held by federal, state and local health experts. The school board followed that public health guidance when voting to require masks. […]”

Of course, if facts matter at all, Preston is correct. But, as WRAL demonstrates, facts don’t really matter to the federal, state, and local health experts; only compliance with the narrative. Don’t take our word for it. Listen to this actual expert on masks. and how completely ineffective they are in terms of stopping spread of the coronavirus.aurora

This is the senseless theater created by fomenting Pandemic Panic, in which a nude emperor strolls the streets entertaining compliments on his beautiful clothes from “federal, state and local health experts,” while Aurora Preston stands to point out that he is, in fact, naked. For this she may lose her job, confirming how completely our world has been deluded.
