According to reports, parents of students at Hudson High School in Ohio are furious after learning their their students were assigned a college-level writing assignment that had offensive and inappropriate adult themes.
Monica Havens explained that she was appalled upon finding out her 17-year-old daughter was given a writing journal in her college credit English course that prompted students to write about a variety of topics, including intimate and violent themes.
The journal given to students is called “642 Things to Write About.”
“One of the topics was ‘You’re a serial killer. What’s on your DVR and why?’” Havens recalled. “I would be completely appalled if somebody asked me to write about those things and I’m a grown woman."
Fox 8 reports:
Hudson parents question how any teacher or administrator could have found the topics acceptable for their children to write about.
“I don’t think any of my corporate clients would tolerate it. Someone would be fired, someone would lose their job,” said corporate trainer George Carson.
One parent, who is a lawyer, points out that some of the topics invite the students to engage in illegal behavior, such as consuming alcohol.
“It’s immediately evident that that someone who instructs a minor to break the law is committing a crime themselves. I mean, that is contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” said Matthew Clapper.
The parents say they were especially disturbed when they learned the writing journal had been part of the curriculum for the past six years.
Hudson Schools Superintendent Phil Herman has spoken out and said that the district was not aware of the content in the journals. They were collected from students on Monday. The writing journals were then collected from students on Monday.
“It’s clear that as a district, we did not properly review this resource, and for that, we sincerely apologize. An independent investigation is now underway to determine how these supplemental materials were reviewed and approved,” Herman said.
Havens asked, “How has this book been in your class or your school for six years and the teachers and the principals and the board were unaware of it? That’s egregious.”
What do you think? Is that inappropriate for high school students? Let us know in the comments.
