An Ohio school teacher is suing her former employer saying she has a phobia of kids.  According to the lawsuit, the teacher was transferred from a high school to middle school in 2009.  She claims it was discrimination against her because she has a rare phobia: a fear of young children.  The lawsuit says the assignment caused her blood pressure to soar and forced her to retire.  A school district attorney says she was transferred because the french program at high school was turning into an online course and the middle school needed a Spanish teacher.
