Reinstate Pete Panse

This petition calls on the Middletown School District Board of Education to reverse the suspension of high school art teacher Pete Panse. It demands specifically the immediate reinstatement of Mr. Panse to his position as art teacher at Middletown High Scool, NY, and public acknowledgement from the Board of Education that the practice of teaching figure drawing including nude models by advanced art students does not constitute any kind of sexual impropriety, nor does recommending such practice to students.
