thats a complete abuse of power and they did right to act against her. I don't know what the course covered exactly but it might have been fairer to get students to write 2 letters - one pro and one anti war and not let those letters leave the classroom. That way the students get an attempt at understanding both sides of the argument and the professor loses her chance to force her political views on students.
And then in his own signature:

Arc your right it is an abuse of power. And I bet the ACLU will go on and defend this teacher.

1) Is it an abuse of power for a teacher to make an assignment?
2) And to start a different argument, would this have been a big deal if the teacher asked for pro-war arguments? seeing as how that's patriotic and all....
