A Victorian private school in Australia allegedly pressured a teacher to resign for personally disagreeing with the anti-marriage equality stance of the college, because of fears parents would pull their children out if they found out her true beliefs.
Rachel Colvin was an English teacher at Ballarat Christian College from 2008 until February 2019.
According to Rachel Colvin, Colvin, in August 2018, the school informed her she would no longer be offered certain teaching and professional development opportunities, despite her offer to keep silent about her personal support for same sex marriage.
She was required to attend counselling sessions with the head of teaching and school chaplain.
