An Orange County history teacher has been sued by a student for continually making anti-religious, anti-conservative comments in an AP European History class.
Quotes from one of the teacher's rants were published by World Net Daily.
Among his idiotic comments: "What part of the country has the highest murder rate? The South. What part of the country has the highest rape rate? The South. What part of the country has the highest … church attendance? The South. Oh, wait a minute. You mean there is not a correlation between these things?"
Our oldest daughter ran into a couple teachers of this ilk at our local high school. They weren't as bad as alleged by this student, but a history teacher's factual distortions -- including making up Bible history -- were bad enough we had a meeting with him. And she walked out on the Civics teacher's Michael Moore movies...
After taking a freshman class with the history teacher, our daughter skipped taking his AP Euro History class. It wasn't worth the extra point on her GPA (for taking an Advanced Placement course) to spend another year in his classroom.
A postscript -- she "homeschooled" herself in European History and passed the AP exam anyway!
