McKinney Middle School Teachers Resign After Posting Anti-Gay and Anti-Islamic Tweets

McKinney ISD officials said late Friday that the district has accepted the resignations of two middle school teachers who previously posted anti-Islamic and anti-LGBT tweets.

The resignations of Justin Barton and Mark Russell, who both worked at Cockrill Middle School, were "self-initiated," district spokesman Cody Cunningham said in a text. It is unclear when Barton and Russell tendered their resignations, but Cunningham's text said the district accepted them on Friday.
