Batavia teacher in 5th Amendment debate ordered to curb remarks
A social studies teacher at Batavia High School has been ordered to keep his opinions to himself, or risk losing his job.
John Dryden was recently suspended for a day for telling his students they didn’t have to answer a school survey about their own drug and alcohol use.
School administrators say they just wanted to identify students who may need counseling, and it was never about punishing substance abusers.
But Dryden says it’s a massive invasion of privacy.
