Teacher Has Students Make ISIS Recruiting Posters for Homework
A teacher at a junior high school in Utah wanted to get her students thinking about a pretty serious problem recently - how ISIS and other terrorist groups use propaganda to recruit people.
The ninth grade teacher's approach, however, was rather questionable and misguided.
According to a parent named Annie Langston, the teacher gave the kids a homework assignment asking them to make a propaganda poster for a terrorist group.
Langston found out about the assignment when she saw her 14-year-old daughter type "how to recruit for ISIS" into Google.
After parents complained, the assignment was canceled and the teacher and principal have since apologized, and all the posters the kids made have been destroyed. The school district also issued an official apology.
As of now, the teacher has not been suspended or fired.
