An adjunct professor at a Texas college who lost his job after teaching standard principles about human biology and reproduction has been reinstated to his position almost a year after he was let go. 

First Liberty Institute, the nonprofit law firm that represented Dr. Johnson Varkey after he was fired from St. Philip’s College in San Antonio, Texas, announced a settlement had been reached with the school on Tuesday. 

The law firm filed a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against St. Philip’s and the Alamo Community College District (ACCD) earlier this year.

“We are happy that the Alamo Community College District voluntarily reinstated Dr. Varkey,” First Liberty Associate Counsel Kayla Toney said in a statement. “He is excited by this outcome, and we are glad that ACCD did the right thing. Dr. Varkey looks forward to continuing to educate students at ACCD.”

The parties reached a favorable settlement which, among other provisions, guarantees that Varkey will be back in the classroom by fall 2024, the law firm said. 

CBN News has reached out to the Alamo Community College District for comment. We’ll post it here if we hear back.
