Graham Taylor

Jay McDowell, a teacher in Howell, Michigan, was temporarily suspended without pay earlier this month after telling a student wearing a Confederate flag and a student making anti-gay remarks to get out of his class.

At a school board meeting on Friday, openly-gay fourteen year-old high school student Graham Taylor came to McDowell’s defense, thanking the teacher for doing “an amazing thing”, New York Magazine reports.
