Well well well, it seems like Churchill High School in Eugene, Oregon, has been caught with their pants down. Parents are outraged, and rightly so, after learning that students were asked to write a “sexual fantasy” as part of an assignment.
I mean, what on earth were they thinking?
This is utterly unacceptable.
No teacher has any business asking a child to share their sexual fantasies. It’s downright creepy, and it’s no wonder parents are up in arms about it. If an adult male asked my daughter to share her sexual fantasies with him, I’d be livid and someone might have to call the police.
And let’s talk about the assignment itself.
According to reports, the assignment included a list of objects to use in the story, including candles, massage oil, feathers, and flavored syrup.
What kind of message is this sending to our children?
It’s not only inappropriate but also potentially dangerous. We should be teaching our children about abstinence, not encouraging them to write about sexual fantasies.
And don’t even get me started on the teacher who assigned this task, Kirk Miller. This teacher should be ashamed of himself and banned from school property.
And what’s even more concerning is that the school district approved this curriculum.
Did they not read it before giving it the green light? If this was reviewed, how did it slip through the cracks? This is rightfully becoming a national scandal.
Thankfully, the school has retracted the assignment and will be reviewing the curriculum.
But the fact remains that this should never have happened in the first place. It’s time for schools to take a long hard look at the assignments they’re giving our children and ensure they’re appropriate and safe.
