You Know it’s Time To Relocate When…

Hat tip to Mean Teacher II

Don't you just love it when, each time your city is in the news, it's because of something wacky some of the residents did?

Ohio High School Porn Homework Canceled


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.

Wow. I can only imagine what a DARE program in that school would be like.

PS. ChinchillaBoy looked over my shoulder when I was reading the article, and exclaimed, "Wow! Will I get to do homework on porn, too?" You never know, ChinchillaBoy... it's Cleveland... anything is possible.
