A teacher says in class, "Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven"
Teacher's gone, probably fired.
Writing a letter to congress that is leaked to the press:
Teacher's suspended without pay, fired shortly after.
teacher spends his class time railing against Bush:
Teacher's suspended with pay.
A very conservative state of mind, and the lectures on geography
were not biased? Lemme quote some of it:
Some of the companies that work in the World Trade Center are these huge, multinational corporations that are directly involved in the
military-industrial complex, in supporting corrupt dictatorships in the Middle East. And so in the minds of al-Qaeda, they’re not attacking innocent
people. They’re attacking legitimate targets, people who have blood on their hands as far as they're concerned.
He also talks about the US being "probably the single most violent nation on planet earth…And we’re a democracy, quote-unquote."
Just the facts, ma'am, no bias there.
Now, the teacher stated on his course overview that he tends to get opinionated, and if that wasn't acceptable they should take another class? This
is high school, not college. You sign up for class, you are assigned to the class that would best suit your schedule, and on the first day of class
you find out about the course overview. So this teacher, essentially, says, "I'm opinionated, have no intention of talking much about geography,
instead defining words like conservativism (in the recording as well) instead of words like plateau. If you have a problem with that, drop this class,
get a study hall instead, and, if you're lucky, you won't have to go to summer school or take a fifth year of high school." Yeah, that's fair. It
was Sean Allen's problem, not the schools, not the teacher's, because Sean Allen is responsible for completing enough courses to graduate in 4
