Teacher boycott

I’m trying to remember a TV-movie from late 90s- early 2000s about a teacher in the South, who told his students something he shouldn’t have told them (maybe about his political views, Holocaust, or maybe about Darwin and the the theory of evolution, etc), and the parents start a boycott against him. At one point there is a school meeting and some of the parents start shouting they don’t want him in the school, trying to fight him, rip his shirt off. There are several students and teachers who support him, and it becomes a subject of national debate. The teacher has blue eyes, and he is new in town. (NOT “Inherit the wind” 1999)
