When the students fill out the paper work, she stamps them “Denied” and then tells them how to do it illegally. Of course she claims this is not political indoctrination. As reported by the Columbus Dispatch:
But she cautions that the point isn't to sway the students, only to teach them a little empathy.

No, of course not. Far be it for a teacher to be a liberal, let alone use her class room for political gain. A captured audience I might add.
She goes on and seems to get the reporter to adopt her politics when it is reported:
But they would gain, she hoped, an understanding of what is one of the most important political and humanitarian issues facing the U.S. government today.
Really? The MOST important humanitarian issue? Political too? Well, at least she admits she is engaging in Political influencing.
Bare in mind liberals fight to remove any reference to religion, no matter what it is, claiming it intimidates, or I guess tricks people into believing, but liberal indoctrination in the schools? Well, that is not only ok, but damn near a requirement for tenure.
So, good job Olentangy Liberty High School. You disappoint like so many others.
Fair is fair, so can I force Erica Vieyra’s kids to read my blog? Hell, she forces outr kids to listen to her beliefs.
Teachers are seen as authorities on information. Kids take what they say and how they act as fact. Shame on Erica Vieyra for using a publicly funded classroom as her pulpit. Shame on Erica Vieyra.
BTW, I get to complain. I pay taxes to the Olentangy schools.
UPDATE: A lot of comments have been left here over this. Most are left by students who are passionate about their teacher. We may not agree, but I am impressed by their determination and debate. Some comments, however, have been childish. At one point a comment was simply a derogatory anti-Semitic word and an offensive derogatory word regarding women repeated over and over. For this reason, I have turned comment moderation on.
I will approve ANY comment left that is an actual comment, but will block any ‘troll vandalism’ that is akin to a fourth grader. Please continue to comment and debate, but for those who simply want to be childish, go elsewhere. Also, since comments leave IP addresses, I know from where comments come, and those leaving derogatory comments do not represent your school well.
For those who have commented, agree or disagree, I appreciate your comments. I am especially impressed with the students of OLHS who have made very intellectual arguments.
