The Wake County middle-school teacher who gained some national notoriety after being suspended for telling her students not to wear rosaries in class has resigned.
As noted in today's article, Patricia Corbino submitted her resignation Nov. 30. She had been suspended for pay for three months while the school district conducted an investigation into a complaint about the rosary incident.
On Aug. 27 on the first day of classes, Corbino , who is Catholic, explained to students her classroom rules. Among them was a request that any student who wore a rosary as a necklace remove it during her class.
