LUMBERTON, Texas – A transgender teacher is all the talk in East Texas.

Laura Klug teaches fifth grade, and some parents complained that she was a distraction.

The school board held a meeting Thursday night to hear from concerned parents, but instead people in support of the transgendered teacher flooded the board meeting, spilling out in the hallway.

The board plans to vote in the next couple days on whether to fire Klug.
