Absolutely, if they want. Your ability to do a job should not be measured by your sexuality.
How does sexuality impact one's teaching ability?
This reminds me of a couple of South Park episodes touching on this topic. Homosexual doesn't = pedophile nor will them teaching make the children gay. Just let them do their job.
Like any teacher gay or straight, their sexuality should not be a topic for discussion and their behaviors should be none sexual. Given that is the case I can't see sexuality being an issue for one over the other. I'm also not implying it would be if you read this like that.
What the heck, why is this even a question?
My sister had a gay teacher, and everyone liked him. He hid his sexuality well, and he went out of his way to be helpful. Plus, sexuality shouldn't be a factor.
It's important to a have a wide range of role models and different types of teachers, which is beneficial to many students. Sexuality is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is how good at teaching they are. I am truly disgusted at the people said no.... this is the 21st century!

I believe there is nothing wrong with homosexual educators. However, I do take issue with the pictures chosen for the agree and disagree. Anyone choosing no has ever right to feel the way they do, but they are essentially being labeled as finger pointing, misinformed individuals. At least that's the feeling I got from those pictures. That is wrong and close-minded.
What does sexual orientation have to do with teaching?
Why is this even a question. If he or she is certified and capable of doing their job, their sexual orientation is irrelevant
Of course homosexuals should be allowed to teach in elementary school. Sexuality does not affect education. The level of role modeling, professionalism, skill in the subject, and socialization towards students does affect education. Homosexuals are not people who are obsessed with sex or pedophiles. Homosexuals are humans too and as long as the person does not abuse the children in any way, then of course, he/she should be allowed to teach in elementary school.
What a person does in the bedroom, doesn't change his qualifications.
