Failing A Teacher
Part 4

This is the fourth installment of the continuing story of a complaint that a high school teacher who teaches conspiracy theory and Leftist bilge when he is supposed to be teaching U.S. History II.

In Part 1, Failing A Teacher, I described the elements of the complaint based on a student's report of what transpired during the school year in a classroom where U.S. History II was supposed to be being taught. Part 2, Failing A Teacher described a phone conversation I had with the retiring principal of the high school where this problem exists. In Part 3, I presented a redacted copy of a letter to the school superintendent when it became evident the principal had no intention of conducting a proper investigation and was just trying to run out the clock on the school year.

What follows in this latest installment is a redacted version of a follow-up email message to the superintendent. It was primarily sent to respond to the superintendent's statement that he was not getting 100% agreement to the allegations in his student interviews.

This series will continue as events unfold.

Biography - Bob Webster

Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
