An Oregon high school has slipped away from an assignment that asked students to write a story describing a “sexual fantasy.”
Parents were outraged that students at Churchill High School in Eugene were taught and asked to write a “fictional story” involving a sexual fantasy. Mission originated from Canvas, an online learning management system.
“For those students who are absent, you will write a short story of one or two paragraphs. This story is a sexual fantasy that will have no penetration of any kind or oral sex (no way to pass an STI),” the assignment. It said.
The students were also asked to use objects in the story such as candles, massage oil, feathers, and a flavored syrup.
Teacher Kirk Miller added that “the story should show that you can show and receive loving physical affection without having sex.”
The task went viral after it was posted on Facebook and parents were outraged.
“If an adult man asked my daughter to share her sexual fantasies with him, I would be furious and go to the police. No teacher has any business asking this of a child,” said one parent.
Another parent told Oregon Live students felt “scared, embarrassed, and creeped out.”
“The district reviews these curricula before approving them, right? Did they actually read this? If this was reviewed, how did it slip through the cracks? I could easily see this becoming a national scandal,” said one parent.
Principal Missy Cole told parents in a letter that the school will work with the district office to “review the approved 2016 Secondary Health Curriculum- OWL: Our Entire Lives to fully contextualize the assignment.”
At this time, the assignment has been removed from the term syllabus and will not be part of students’ grades. The OWL curriculum is used by many districts across the state and is endorsed by Oregon Department of EducationShe said.
