Teacher booted from Portland School District after protracted battle with PP
This teacher has some excellent credentials. I doubt he'll be out of work for long. Oregon's loss will be another's gain. Interesting that leftists view protests and activism as their fundamental rights. Apparently that right is not extended to anyone else. The fact that the District fired Mr.Diss is testimony to how much they feared him.

Bill Diss, Portland teacher
March 22, 2013 (American Life League) - An exemplary math and computer science teacher has been unjustly escorted out of Benson High School by police following a protracted battle with school officials about Planned Parenthood’s presence in the school and its association with his students.
Bill Diss was notified on Tuesday after the last student left his class that he was being placed immediately on administrative leave “pending a recommendation to the superintendent that you be dismissed from your employment with Portland public schools for reasons that have been discussed with you.” The mild-mannered Mr. Diss told STOPP that he was given only a few minutes to gather his belongings before police escorted him out. He was ordered not to return to the Portland, Oregon, school where he has taught for 11 years.
Mr. Diss is an outstanding teacher, who recently was awarded certification and recognition as the only teacher in Oregon who is qualified to teach college level computer science to high school students for dual credit. He has taught at the college and high school level for a total of 18 years.
Planned Parenthood has been in pursuit of Mr. Diss since 2007 when he began organizing efforts to stop Planned Parenthood. A STOPP press release from February of 2009 noted that Planned Parenthood of Columbia Willamette wanted Bill Diss’ teaching license revoked. The press release quoted American Life League’s Jim Sedlak: “Bill has organized one of the most effective efforts against Planned Parenthood in the country. It’s no surprise Planned Parenthood will resort to anything—even going after his teaching license—in order to silence him....”

The ACLU will be on the side of Planned Parenthood. Free speech only applies to their kind of speech. Diversity is skin deep and doesn't apply to thought.

Meanwhile, the rest of his peers will see his ordeal and draw the lesson that it's better to swallow your scruples and obey the political class' dictates, which is the ultimate goal of the totalitarian left.
