You're not going to like my answer, but consider it as advice given with the best intentions.
Since you are wanting to tackle this problem anonymously, I assume you are a bit fearful of either hurting an otherwise good teacher or being targeted
as a troublemaker. If you go the normal legal route, you will not be able to forgo either of those possibilities. You will not remain anonymous.
My daughter asked a similar question of me when she entered high school. She has serious doubts about evolutionary theory as proposed at present. Her
question was: "What do I do if I have to write an essay about evolution? I don't want to say I agree with something I do not agree with, but I
don't want to make a bad grade for saying it's wrong when the book says it's right."
My response? "If that happens, go ahead and write the essay according to what the book claims, but preface your essay with the phrase 'According to
the textbook...'. You do need to understand the theory whether or not you agree with it."
My point was, and is, that no amount of teaching, no lawsuit, no argument will ever determine what is and is not a sound physical theory. Only time
and research will allow us to ultimately determine what is true and what is not. That will require people with critical thoughtful insight into
evidence presented and the drive to learn all they can learn and let the truth fall where it may. You have the textbook; study on your own if you want
to learn more about evolutionary theory. You'll have to study on your own when you graduate anyway, as universities are not known for force-feeding
If you want to share your beliefs on the theory with the rest of the class, simply read ahead on those chapters and then, should the opportunity arise
in a classroom discussion, bring it up. "I was reading in this chapter and noticed the book says...." You may well start a conversation between your
teacher and your classmates that out-informs any boring lecture he/she could have given.
There are always ways to bring your point to the attention of others without being confrontational. THAT is a skill that will serve you very well
throughout life; I highly recommend you start practicing it now.
Good luck on your studies!
P.S.: I implore others to not turn this into a creation vs. evolution thread. I don't think that is why the question was asked.
At least I hope it isn't.
