Poll: Is A School Assignment To Come Up With Terrorist Attack Appropriate?
Posted by Casey on May 11, 2009
Students in Pueblo, Colorado have been given a homework assignment to come up with a terrorist attack for history class.
A ninth grade history project at a high school in Pueblo was supposed to teach students about terrorism, but instead it outraged parents.
Gini Fischer says her daughter came home Thursday saying she had two minutes to come up with a plot for an act of terrorism.
I actually had an assignment once in history class where I chose to draw up invasion plans for numerous countries. However, the teacher didn’t require that to be the assignment.
Naturally, the school is saying that the kids misinterpreted the assignment, and that any kid who plots an attack on the school will be punished. They are destroying the assignments as we speak.
Is an assignment like this appropriate for school?
