Students Reveal Teacher Brought Anti-Gay Bias to the Classroom

Weak Anti-Bullying Policy Leaves Lake County Students Unprotected

Click here to send an email to the Lake County School Board
Strengthen Lake County Anti-Bullying Policy
Demand the Lake County School Board expand the district's anti-bullying and non-discrimination policies to include sexual orientation and gender identity.
More troubling revelations have emerged surrounding Jerry Buell, a Lake County teacher who posted virulently anti-gay comments on Facebook. 
 
Last week Jerry Buell, a Lake County teacher at Mount Dora High School gained national attention for publicly posting comments comparing gay couples to "a cesspool" on Facebook. Initially Mr. Buell was suspended from his teaching position, though the Lake County School Board has since placed him back in the classroom. 
 
A growing number of students have come forward to describe Mr. Buell's homophobic behavior in the classroom. Brian Blaise, an honors student who graduated in 2003, described the day Mr. Buell offered his disturbing take on the issue of gays serving in the military:
"I looked up when he said he supported gays in the military, stunned by the answer. He immediately followed that comment with the statement that we should then put them on the front lines, and pull back," Blaise said.
Another of his students recounted Mr. Buell invoking the quote "A pig in a tuxedo is still a pig" to declare his disdain for recognizing gay relationships. 
 
A syllabus that Buell admits to have used for many years states his beliefs plainly,
"I teach God's truth, I make very few compromises. If you believe you may have a problem with that, get your schedule changed, 'cause I ain't changing!"
 
Last week nearly 300 of our members in the Lake County area sent letters calling for a thorough investigation. Now we need everyone to step up and deliver the message that every student deserves a safe learning environment. 
 
60% of Florida's students live in school districts that provide specific protections from anti-gay bullying and discrimination. But, Lake County is not one of them.

No teacher should be allowed to any student feel "less than" in the classroom. Whether or not he pleads ignorance, Jerry Buel has to have injured students with his hostility towards the lesbian & gay community. It's time to remove him from the classroom!

While I went to middle school where Mr. Buell taught in the 90s, I didn't know about his homophobic views. I was, however, very aware of his faith. I found him out of line. He would make any Jew, Muslim, or atheist student very uncomfortable.

This man needs to be dismissed immediately. I cannot believe in his day and age such hate is tolerated. Unless that s the general consensus of the Lake County school board; in which case I recommend you all be dismissed

His arrogance is too much! He tells students to change their schedule if they don't like his syllabus. The school district should use his same principle and tell him to change his job if he doesn't like their rules.

"I teach God's truth"

It seems to me that this cretin is clearly claiming that he is teaching religion in his PUBLIC school classroom. In addition to Buell's bigotry, anger and his efforts to indoctrinate children with hate, Buell is breaking the law.

Sure the Board didn't find anything. They DIDN'T want too. As a former private investegator, this investigation was a total sham!!! His beliefs were posted on face book and visible for the whole world!!! That's all they needed to do. They apparently are just as bigoted, homophobic and un-christian as this nazi. Yes, nazi! Remember, during the holocaust, gays were interred and murdered along with the Jews. These hate mongers pick a couple of verses from the Bible to justify their hatred and totally ignore the rest of the Bible. See my previous comment and for their information, they are not christians. Jesus NEVER said a word about homosexuality, so they are not following the words of Christ.

I can't believe that this nutty imbecilic fanatic is still being allowed to spew his totally un-christian , stupid fascist views to our impressionable kids . Luckily, polls are showing that kids are getting it and are not falling for this crap. Christ preached love, not hate!!! Now if we could get the red neck parents to become intelligent and not spew the same hatred. Somebody ought to inform them that the Bible also advocates stoning adulterers and misbeha ving children to death. That sure would take care of the population explosion wouldn't it? The entire school board should be recalled and replaced with actual human beings if they could be found!!!

Well, if those two students statements where true, the school board investigation of him would have found them.

They reinstated him because your false student clams never happened.
