With a major push to improve math scores through the Common Core in Oregon, it seems they can hardly afford to fire math teachers, particularly the only one who is qualified to teach dual high school and college credit math courses. To achieve that goal, one would think that Planned Parenthood’s role in the classroom would be less important than math. Yet, it seems they fired a math teacher who wanted to teach math rather than turn his classroom into a Planned Parenthood recruitment ground.

Bill Diss was a math and technology teacher at Benson High School in Portland, Oregon for 11 years. Mr. Diss was opposed being forced to allow recruiters from the Teen Outreach Program (TOP), a program administered by Planned Parenthood, to enter his classroom during tutorial sessions. Previously, a “health education team” came into his computers science class uninvited to enroll his students in the Health and Human Services’ Teen Outreach Program (TOP).

He was fired this week because he told Planned Parenthood they were not allowed in his class.

His objections to the TOP outreach program seems well grounded. The “facilitators” had not gone through the mandatory background checks that are required for school personnel/volunteers nor did they have the certifications for sex/child abuse that the state requires. Further, he felt the use of monetary rewards for enrollment to be troublesome. Then there is the issue of effective use of classroom time, particularly since the TOP program has no relevance to anything he is teaching.
