Parents Are Pissed Over This Slavery Homework Assignment

Filed under: Educational

One Melvindale, Michigan student says his homework makes feel "ashamed of being black." So sad!

Parents are fuming because their kids were told to pretend to be a slave for a school assignment. The students were instructed to talk like a slave, dress like a slave, and create a fake journal detailing their life working on a plantation.

The assignment is trying to teaching kids to sympathize with the horrible lifestyle slaves were forced into. We get that, we love that.

HOWEVES, it's the "talking like a slave" part that we find totes insulting. WTF do they sound like?

Still, it's not as raciest as THIS homework assignment!

Teachers Blame Social Networking For Poor Student Performance

It’s official — teachers hate Facebook.

Or they at least hate what they believe it’s doing to students. A recent report says that seven out of 10 teachers blame social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter for “plummeting pupil standards." Not only that, but half of teachers surveyed said that students can’t write well with a pen due to touch pads and keyboards. They feel that homework and concentration suffer when students spend too much time on social networking sites.

Yikes! We hope these teachers’ hunches aren’t true!
