Texas School Assigns Kids Homework on Drug Dealing

Cocaine Assignment

An assignment assigned sixth-graders in Keller, Texas is under investigation after a parent complained that it taught kids how to become cocaine dealers.

A complaint was filed with the Keller Independent School District over an assignment given sixth graders entitled “The Cocaine Trade: From Field to Street.”

Parent Scott Pick told CBS DFW that he saw the word “Cocaine” written largely across his 11-year-old son’s science work, in an assignment called “Following the Sequence.”

The project listed the steps of drug trade, from Cartel to street dealer.

“I felt like they were giving my kid a diagram of how to become a drug dealer,” Pick said.

The school district, in a written statement to CBS DFW, said, “Keller ISD takes the issue of drug abuse very seriously, and as such, allocates multiple resources to combat abuse through drug education and intervention. The study sheet in question will be reviewed before being considered for future use. The district will continue its concerted efforts to review, remind, and revise drug educational material on a regular basis.”
