A popular math teacher who was fired from Benson High School in Portland, Oregon for refusing to allow Planned Parenthood to present their sex-ed program in his classroom has filed a lawsuit alleging the violation of his civil rights as well as employment discrimination.
The Life Legal Defense Fund (LLDF) is reporting on the case of Bill Diss, a popular teacher at Benson High who had been teaching math at the school for eleven years before his termination on December 16, 2013.
The incident in question took place in September, 2012, when Planned Parenthood employees came to the door of Diss' classroom while he was handing out grades on a math quiz.
Diss, a devout Roman Catholic, was aware of the content of the program and refused to allow the representatives into his classroom. A few minutes later, the principal and vice principal arrived and removed Diss from the class. The next day, administrators compelled him to sit through a Planned Parenthood presentation. What he observed only made him more concerned.
“They were extremely aggressive in obtaining the children’s signatures by promising them all sorts of gifts and cash,†Diss said.
Diss formally asked to be excused from participating in the program, but administrators denied this request and began to subject him to a series of unwarranted reviews and harassment.
"The level of scrutiny to which he was subjected is unprecedented, and included record numbers of in-class observations, as well as minute instructions of what Diss could and could not do in class," reports the LLDF, who is representing the teacher.
"While Diss consistently complied with directives and worked to improve his teaching, nothing he did satisfied Benson High School administrators who worked overtime to build a case for Diss’ termination. They eventually succeeded. Despite a wave of community support, including letters from students, parents and fellow teachers, Mr. Diss was let go from work on March 19, 2012 and his contract was terminated on December 16, 2013."
“Planned Parenthood seems to enjoy protected status at Portland Public Schools. Mr. Diss came under attack as soon as he objected," comments Dana Cody, LLDF President and Executive Director.
“While this is only the beginning, we trust that Mr. Diss will ultimately be vindicated, and that future, well-qualified teachers will not be subjected to discipline and termination from employment for their religious and moral beliefs.â€
