Bill Diss has a passion for teaching young students. He has risked and sacrificed much of his life to make a difference in the lives of his students. Parents extol his efforts, and youngsters cherish his role as a mentor in their lives. Yet school authorities are making a grandstand effort to tar and feather him.
Mr. Diss’ teaching license is being challenged because he advises his students to make healthy choices that don’t include the agenda being forced upon students by Planned Parenthood and other agencies who promote “free sex” and similar agendas.
Mr. Diss—and indeed all teachers who genuinely care about teaching and empowering students with the ability to think, learn and live long and healthy, productive lives—need our help. If you live in the Portland, Ore., area, please attend the hearing Thursday, where charges are being brought against him. If not, please call or write the authorities to demand justice for Diss and his students and their families who appreciate him.
One student wrote,
“Mr. Diss has done a lot for me and my family and there is no way that we could ever repay him. I believe that the world is in desperate need of good, honest people. If Mr. Diss gets his teaching license revoked, then that will only take another good source of help from the students.”My friend Paul Rondeau, noted columnist and commentator, writes in The Washington Times,
“Bill Diss is an experienced, highly qualified and popular computer science teacher. On [Thursday], the Portland school district and Planned Parenthood will try to have him declared unfit to teach."
