In case you had not heard, Cave Creek Unified suspended a high school drama teacher for using instructional materials that some parents found objectionable. You can read the most balanced story about the suspension here in the Arizona Republic from reporter Mary Beth Faller.
Cactus Shadows student Kyle Kuo wrote a letter to Superintendent Debbi Burdick about the incident. My. Kuo is a Cactus Shadows senior who apparently is a student of the suspended teacher. We offered Mr. Kuo the chance to present his letter to the community.
Below is his letter in it entirety with no editing other than removing Mr. Kuo’s address (formatting errors are my fault). You can find Mr. Kuo at @kylepkuo.
