You don't insult your teacher.... They're using their time to educate idiots like this... They deserve some respect... "if you don't have something good to say, shut the fuck up" yea....
Yes sir Mr. Kaysl, you just obviously know the teacher, AND parent because you seem to know everything. Maybe the teacher was right, the mom was just being a bitch.... Well Never know :(
Hard to tell here. If a science teacher were teaching about evolution or global warming, a parent might call that a political belief. I would call it teaching science. We just do not know the details but a lot of people consider everything they agree with to be a fact and everything they disagree with to be a political belief. Me, I think that someone this old should be seeing a variety of views, even from their teachers.
I do believe that I read the FML, and I do believe that I have the ability to write. Making your point invalid. Please use correct terminology if your going to insult me.
Withought instruction more individuals would be as seemingly uneducated and vulgar as yourself. Teachers are needed - shape the young and instruct those older. There are assholes in every field - most behind the scenes. Such public professions are just more visible and so we here more of the dicks.
Opinions are like penises. Lots of people have one, and that's perfectly fine, but you can't just go around whipping it out in public. And DON'T force it down everyone elses throats because you think it's the best. OP's son's teacher forced his opinion on everyone in the class, and THAT is the problem. Not the swearing in class.
While I agree that the OP's son's teacher may be in the wrong (and we don't really know unless we have information on what the "political opinion" actually is), that teacher is not a representative for all teachers. Teachers are desperately needed, and are a very under appreciated and under respected role. It's rather sad that so many people want to dump on the professional role of a teacher, regardless of the fact that without said teachers, much of society wouldn't be able to read or write.
It seems like whenever we read an FML we invent a backstory and fill in details from our own experience. Then we set off to the task of arguing from our biases. There are two ways off the top of my head that the assignment could really be acceptable is if the presentation was about something considered fact, which a section of the population considers controversial - like whether the Earth is round or not. The other would be a debate scenario where the student was made to advocate for the side that he didn't necessarily agree with - but OP says all the kids had to write on the same opinion. Or maybe the teacher made everybody give a speech on why we should repeal abolition - we can't know. The only useful thing to do is take OP's word for it. The teacher made all the kids espouse his opinion. One student protested, and used a swear. At 17, he was suspended for it, which seems a little harsh, but schools tend to be harsh these days. Then the teacher called up the parent to bitch them out. Teachers as a whole are awesome, but I'm forced to conclude this guy is a wanker. /walloftext
From what I gather lemon_phat is the only intelligent one here you don't no all the facts and don't go bullshitting YOUR own facts like he said it could have been a paper on evolution or the Big Bang it could also have been an English report on a book (for which there are many opinions to and the teacher tried to steer them to the main theme) what I'm saying is don't hate on him he has educated facts Also DO NOT hate on the teacher for the main reason is now days parents bombard the fucking teacher if their child is failing it is not the teachers fault if the kid doesn't give a fuck about school and fails.
Suspension for his own opinion she asked for? Sounds to me like the teacher needs to lighten up. She pretty much asked for it.
Your son is the man! He shouldn't have used the abusive language, but I agree with what he said 100%. Bad teacher, making the kids agree with his opinion - he must teach "Closed minds 101" Give your kid a pat on the back for me!

Actually, IF he made the students advocate for the teacher's view, which I don't think he did, this would be getting some of the students to open their mind. This would be teaching that there is two sides to any story and belief, and that one person can argue for anything whether or not it is that person's views.
A pat on the back for principle...a smack on the wrist for execution. Though he stood up for himself I'm sure there were more tactful ways of expressing his point. And BS, the students could have easily advocated for someone else's beliefs by random selection of various POVs, but it appears the entire class was given the task of defending only one side of the spectrum.
Opinions are like bellybuttons. Mines an outie so I openly give my opinion. Logic.
