In this era of tight school budgets, it's perhaps not surprising that Pittsburgh teacher George Kirk wasn't able to secure the funds he needed to purchase safety glasses and special jackets for his welding students.

But the former Pittsburgh Public Schools employee alleges in a lawsuit filed Monday that it wasn't a lack of resources, but rather a bias against men by a predominately female-run department that eventually resulted in his furlough last year and the discontinuation of the welding program at the district's Career and Technical Education Department.
