A Bay area teacher is off the hook and back at school despite
a post on Facebook that suggested a student might be the "evolutionary link
between orangutans and humans."
Lauren Orban was a music teacher at Rogers Garden Elementary
in Bradenton at
the time she made the comment, which included the student's initials.
The comment sparked outrage from parents – even a protest
from dozens of parents and students.
At the time, she received a warning, and officials were
looking into revoking her teaching license, but that won't happen. Officials
said she's teaching at a different school this year.
And the family of the child says they're OK with that
