Confronting this teacher on a personal level may not accomplish anything good! Unless you are ready to take on the whole school government/school system!
Take this opportunity to home school your daughter on this issue and it may open her eyes to the other side of the information coin! This is a good opportunity to teach her not to beleive everything she reads and to learn to question those in positions of authority! Find some good opposing literature for her to read and discuss the issue together! Make lemonade out of lemons so to speak!
