Re: “ACLU investigating Mills High showing of 'Passion of the Christ,' teacher's classroom rant about 'liberalism' after complaints

I am another student from mills and i also have never had any of his classes, from what I have heard is that the class is specifically U.S. History from 1890. So what I do not understand is why he showed this movie in the first place, and the questionnaire that was supposed to be filled out also doesn't seem to be something that should be taught in the curriculum at the school. I would also like to point out that in the audio recording he made several statements that shouldn't count as a credible "Fact" and should be registered as opinions about other people's support and beliefs. I would have to say that I am not very impressed with the way that he addressed the students with "ya'll", and by that I mean that he is indicating that it is the student's fault for what a "Liberal wants". I refuse to accept that he knows actually knows what is written in the first amendment and what separation of church and state are, considering what he described as "peaceful assembly". There is also some of the other comments that disregard a students ability to think on their own, (this next part is for those people , you have to understand that most of these kids are taught that they should always agree with what the teacher says and believe that what they are telling them is the exact knowledge they will need in life, so in some classes "critical thinking skills" are not taught and also if a students opinion is voiced and it is against what the teacher says that student can receive punishment for it. I feel as though some of the shorter comments that are written by the inappropriate names should not have as much sway to some readers as they actually do and should mostly be looked at in a way where the reader can see that the person typing might not actually have put any thought into what they were trying ( or not trying ) to explain. Over all I am very disappointed in the lack of maturity that this teacher has displayed in front of students and the extreme biased and insulting nature that he expressed in the recording and also in the classes all throughout the entire year
Sincerely - Jonathan Garland or JG for short
