50. First off, 900+ credible peer-related scientiests is where Gore gets his info
He's simple the mouthpiece used to relay that message to the public.

Second this isn't free speech, this is separation of church & state. The one parent wants to promote religious ideologies in a public school.

Finally there is another option - show the movie and let parents know the movie is being showed. Any parent that objects can have their kids excused for a study hall or something. Al Gore's movie is about scientist and creationism is nothing more than religious ideology. Even myself, also a lifetime Christian, can see the difference.
