Problem? What Problem?

Typically, most high school students would be grateful if a homework assignment there were ordered to complete was cancelled. Oh there are the always the ‘fun’ project assignments, like field trips and movie watching.

Movie watching…heh.

A high school research assignment on Internet pornography was canceled after parents in this Cleveland suburb complained.

Superintendent Jeff Lampert said that although the teacher’s apparent goal _ to discuss the harmful effects of pornography _ was well- intentioned, he agreed with parents that the assignment was inappropriate for 14- and 15-year-old freshmen at Brooklyn High.

The assignment asked students to research pornography on the Internet and list eight facts about pornography. Students also were asked to write their personal views of pornography and any experience they had with it.

Lampert said he doubted the teacher would face any punishment.

I suppose that kills the gun bullet ballistics class too. Darn.

Speak Your Mind
