Jannuzzi Case Should Not Discourage Teachers from Evangelizing the Culture, Experts Say
Jannuzzi Case Should Not Discourage Teachers from Evangelizing the Culture, Experts Say
4/24/2015 || When a Catholic school teacher is disciplined using a harsh tone in a public debate over a sensitive issue—as happened recently in the controversial case of a New Jersey teacher who was suspended for her Facebook defense of traditional marriage—is there a danger that it could chill teachers’ public witness to the faith? The Cardinal Newman Society spoke to two education experts who acknowledged the challenge for schools and bishops but bemoaned any actions that might prevent teachers from fulfilling their calling as witnesses for Christ.

Last week, Immaculata High School in Somerville, N.J., announced that Patricia Jannuzzi, a Catholic school teacher who garnered national attention when she was suspended for comments defending traditional marriage on her Facebook page, would continue her employment so long as she monitors her tone and choice of words when addressing matters of faith in public.

Numerous Vatican documents speak to the importance of teachers engaging the culture and evangelizing their students, but incidents like the Januzzi suspension can make teachers nervous about the consequences of using a tone or word choice that is offensive or misconstrued.
