The incident took place in DeKalb County, Georgia.
A Georgia schoolteacher has been suspended after assigning his 6th grade students a project containing vulgar lyrics from rapper Kodak Black.
A students’ mother brought the profanity-laced homework assignment to the school board’s attention due to its’ inappropriate nature stemming from the lyrics to Kodak & A Boogie’s hit song ‘Drowning.’ The intention of the assignment (see photo below) was to have students turn the lyrics into “something positive.” Though directions are unclear, the language used on paper is definitely innapropriate for a 12-year-old.
The DeKalb County superintendent issued a statement reading, “The assignment was inappropriate, unacceptable and contrary to our standards. The employee responsible has been removed from the classroom and will be held accountable for such poor judgment. While we encourage teacher creativity, the expectation is that the instruction is always standards-based and age appropriate.”
