CBS Local- Parents of students at Encinal High School in Alameda want a teacher fired after they say he sent them home with an extra credit assignment of finding sex toys and condoms in their parents’ private drawers, and taking a selfie with what they find.
Mothers Kimberly Cobene and Evangeline Garcia heard about the sex toy selfie last month from a counselor at an afterschool program their sophomore daughters attend.
“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.
“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,” Cobene said.
This teacher is a sick twisted human being, He's more than likely a pedophile that deserves to be locked up for the forseeable future. At the very least he shouldn't be allowed within 1,000 yards of anyone under the age of 20. There are no doubts about that. Even if he was kidding, no joke that perverse doesn't have a decent amount of sincerity to it.
However, that doesn't mean he is a bad teacher. I first read this as if this were an actual homework assignment. Now that would be wrong. You can't demand that your students go rummaging though the deep dark cavities of their parents nightstands just to keep up with the material. However, that's not the case here. This was an extra credit assignment. You can't complain about something that isn't a part of the curriculum. You don't want to rub up against your Mom's vibrator and bust out the selfie stick then don't get a D on the midterm. If anything this professor is a pioneer. What better way to motivate his students to study hard than by making it impossible for them to increase their grade without acknowledging their parents sex life. What means more to you, a passing grade or being left emotionally unscarred? You can't expect an assignment that can only stand to benefit you to be easy. According to every school related porn in the history of the internet a teacher can demand whatever he wants out of his students if the return is a higher letter grade. These kids are just lucky he didn't make them use the toys on themselves in from of the whole class. Sure, this guy doesn't belong in charge of a group kids, but for my money I can't think of a better educator.
P.S. You mean to tell me a bunch of sophomores couldn't get their hands on some sex toys that didn't belong to their parents? How is a teacher to differentiate between a vibrator that belongs to your mother or your girlfriend? Golden extra credit opportunity missed because these kids were looking out for the greater good. Satisfying your teacher's fetishes gets you an A. Having a strong moral foundation just gets you a pat on the back.
