Parents want a California teacher fired after he allegedly sent students home with a bizarre extra credit assignment.
They say the teacher Encinal High School in Alameda last month asked students to look for sex toys and contraceptive devices their parents had hidden and take a selfie photograph with their findings, reported KPIX-TV.
“It was to go into your parents’ private drawers or whatever to seek out sexual toys or condoms, or anything of that nature and to take a selfie with it,” Cobene said.
Two parents told the TV station they learned about the assignment from a counselor at an after-school program attended by their sophomore daughters, but they complained that school officials dismissed the teacher’s request as a joke.
But the parents said at least one student took the assignment seriously, and the teacher used the photo as an example in class.
“From what I understand, a student actually did it and he used that as an example of what it should look like for the other students,” said Kimberly Cobene.
The two mothers said they want the teacher to be fired, but they said school administrators have declined to share information in what they have described as a human relations issue.
“We don’t feel comfortable with our children being in his presence,” said Evangeline Garcia.
School officials declined to comment on the teacher’s employment status, saying the incident remained under investigation.
