and sued for teaching falsehoods and racial and homophobic bigotry and hate.
What would be the legal theory behind such a law suit? Is it really illegal to teach falsehoods, bigotry, and/or hate?

You could start with anti-hate legislation, but if you are receiving money to teach a curriculum compatible with the public school, then there should be fines etc if they don't
There should be fines? Well are there fines?
Why don't you cite some enacted anti-hate legislation that you think would work against teaching lies and bigotry. I don't believe there is any legislation that would give you a cause of action as long as the hate does not cross a free speech line and is not delivered by a State employee.
FWIW, North Carolina public school history books have documented lies in them right now.
