Mayor demands school board resign or face child pornography charges for course material

BREAKING: Hudson mayor demands all school board members resign or face possible criminal charges over high school course material that he said a judge called "child pornography."

“I'm going to give you a simple choice: You either choose to resign or you will be charged."



Short Twitter video


quote:

The Hudson mayor is asking all five school board members to resign or face possible criminal charges over high school course material that he said a judge called "child pornography."


Mayor Craig Shubert made the statement during Monday night's board of education meeting after multiple parents complained about the content of some writing prompts contained in a book called "642 Things to Write About" provided to high school students who are taking a college credit course called Writing in the Liberal Arts II.


Parents said there was a prompt that asked students to "write a sex scene you wouldn't show your mom," and another which said "rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you'd let your mom read."


Another prompt asked students to drink a beer and describe how it tastes. Parents said they felt these writing prompts and others were not appropriate for high school students.


One speaker said he was "appalled" by the content and requested that cameras be put into the classroom so parents could monitor what is being taught to their children. Another speaker said the material was "disgusting" and that it amounted to "grooming."


In a prepared statement, Superintendent Phil Herman said the "inappropriate and offensive writing prompts" were part of a supplemental resource used in the high school senior-level College Credit Plus writing sections.


"The district immediately determined this writing resource should not be in the hands of our students, and on Monday, collected the books from the students enrolled in the course," Herman said. "It is important to note that at no time were any of these inappropriate writing prompts assigned as part of the class."


quote:

High school principal Brian Wilch said the class is offered in association with Hiram College but is taught at the high school. He also said the "642 Things" book has been used in the past.


Wilch told the board Monday that he and his administrative team apologized to the students' parents. The school is searching for replacement material that is suitable for high school students, he said.


"We did not exercise due diligence when we reviewed this resource and as a result, we overlooked several writing prompts among the 642 that are not appropriate for our high school audience," Wilch said. "…We feel terrible. At no time were any of these inappropriate prompts selected or discussed, but still they were there and they were viewable, and you can't unsee them."


Shubert on Monday night gave the board an ultimatum.


"It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom," Shubert told the board. "I've spoken to a judge this evening. She's already confirmed that. So I'm going to give you a simple choice: You either choose to resign from this board of education or you will be charged."


His statement was met with cheers and applause from many of the audience members.

Hey, blot out the book title. We don't need to provide more reading material to our resident progressives.

While I don’t think that sort of stuff has any place in a high school I’m not quite sure it rises to the level of child porn. Also not sure the mayor gets to pick and chose who gets charged unless they have unique legal system in that state/county.

Did the school board select the curriculum? Around here it would be the principal and teachers who need to resign, unless the board knew about it and defended it or something.

How about they be charged with child pornography and then forced to resign? It is crazy to me that this isnt the only option our there.


This of course if the material is truly pornographic in nature.

So you sign Kayden up for a college level class and are outraged when he's exposed to college curriculum he's going to get in less than 12 months.


Kindly stfu... sounds like maybe they should have home schooled

re: Mayor demands school board resign or face child pornography charges for course material
This is garbage. Pretending high school seniors are completely unaware of sex is why teen pregnancy and fartherless children are so out of control. A mayor treatinging serious criminal charges over this is gross overreach. Some of y'all claim to be conservatives but desperately want a nanny state to guard any semblance of morality. Grow up.

This is the response of parents whose kids will be screwed in real life

If you as an adult frick a 17 year old - you go to prison. So no, a teacher shouldn't be asking a student to write about sex acts they wouldn't tell their parent about because by law - that is what we have determined that these kids are indeed not adults and therefore adults shouldn't be trying to frick them or asking them about their sex lives.

A mayor is the boss of a local police dept.

Sure the State could step in but they do have authority of the PD.

Probably have a lot of pull with the DA but not sure if they have any authority over them.

Perhaps there's more to the story.

Or

Asking underage kids to write smut could be,considered child porn.

No, in Ohio, and the majority of states, you don't. And it is a very far cry from presenting 642 writing prompts, some of which include sex, to accusing people who probably didn't review the entirety of the curriculum, of being child pornographers. This is grasping about for things to be outraged over that I would expect from dumbasses like #metoo

Sex ed, which loads of parents were against, has now become teaching 4th graders how to give blowers in some districts.

It's always a slippery slope with dems.

In Ohio, it’s illegal for a teacher to frick their student even if the student is of legal age. So, you’re just wrong.
