H.S. Homework: Research Porn

AP) 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.SNIP

Just going to these sites makes them vulnerable. Stupid behavior for a teacher with responsibility to their students.

Is this what they call a progressive teacher?

Sounds to me like he was looking for new porn sources. Thought maybe he could get some new ideas from the kids, maybe?
Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

What a perv...when I was in high school we had to read this horrible book called The Buffalo Tree. The entire book was swearing, sex and drugs. The year after I graduated a whole bunch of people took the book to the school board and tried to get it taken out of the school. It was a big thing...and ultimately the school board voted to keep the book. I see no educational value in that book, same with this project this teacher assigned.
