Remember the good ol’ days of school… They’re over…
Students at a New Jersey school were subject to an inappropriate language arts assignment.
The Myron L. Powell Elementary School kids in Cedarville had to write a “reactive response” to a given situation.
The situation contained partying, drinking, sex and STDs… and it wasn’t a sex-ed class.
This is what the assignment said:
“You had a really rotten day, but lucky for you your best friend is having an awesome party later. You go to the party and start drinking. You have a little too much to drink and start talking to this girl/guy you’ve never seen before. You head upstairs to better acquainted despite several friends telling you that you don’t even know this person. You end up having sex with this person. The next day you really can’t remember everything that happened and rely on your best friend to fill you in. A week later you find out that you contracted herpes from your one night stand and that this is a disease you will have all your life and never known when an outbreak will occur.”
Parents were outraged when their kids informed them of the assignment.
“It’s insane,” said Amy Loper, mother of one of the students. “There is no reason whatsoever to discuss that kind of stuff with a kid. It’s not sex education class. It’s language arts.”
“Society is in such a downward spiral and everyone is willing to go along on the ride instead of trying to bring up their kids and actually parent,” she said.
