An English teacher at a New Hampshire High School is being watched like a hawk after assigning a rather interesting essay topic to her class of about 12 or 13 seniors.
The students un her class were asked to write a response to the question (and we swear we’re not making this up): “If you knocked your brother down, would you urinate in his mouth?”
A school spokesman said that the assignment was supposed to help motivate the students to improve their writing, but the teacher lack judgment in assigning that question.
“While on the one hand, I appreciate her interest in trying to get kids to write, there are other topics and there are more appropriate prompts that could create that same kind of interest,” the spokesman said.
Local media reported that the teacher is now being monitored by a supervisor.
