    Doesn't this sound like the teacher might be 'getting off' on 14-15 year olds 'experiences'?
    I wonder how many kids are in the class? You have to wonder where the rest are...

    Good Lord! I would be making a much bigger stink about that one!

    There was a time in US history when teachers had to meet morality requirements to get/keep their jobs.

    Only three called to complain? How sad.

    That's what I was trying to figure out. I wonder if the teacher told the kids not to bring the assignment up? I know my kids would have come home, especially the boys, all excited that they had a reason to get online to trash, that I would normally have blocked.

    I know if they did, I wouldn't have unblocked, I would though be on the phone the next day.

    You know what else, Superintendent? If I were one of the parents involved, I’d be demanding the firing of EVERYONE who had anything to do with the approval or knowledge of this assignment, and I wouldn’t stop until it was done.
    Sadly, this shows the true weakness of our public education system, that being the Parents.

    Think about it, folks. One teacher and (conservatively) a minimum of 30 parents, and only 3 complained!
    Where are the other 27?
    This is why no amount of money will fix the system, ever. IMO
