Porn mix-up gives Cliff students memorable lesson

Cliff High School students studying World War I history were instead exposed to a few seconds of pornography last week when they were shown a film on the Paris 1919 Treaty of Versailles that had been recorded over a porn tape. Full Story

Now that's a great way to keep these kids awake in class and interested in education! Makes me wish I could go back to school. Anyone know how I can get a copy of the tape?

Meanwhile the teenage girl pregnancy rate is still high. Pretty sure most of those kids will be just fine....

The sad thing is that this teacher is a substitute so they'll be made a scapegoat in this age of hypersensitivity.

Do they actually think this is something the kids have not seen before?

The parents and their sanctimonious community standards BS .... take your heads out of the sand and realize that your kids have seen nearly as bad on broadcast TV for years.

Those that act holier than thou ... make me want to hurl.

The fact that this was taped off of a television show is a violate of copyright as well. They better hope they don't get a call from History Channel lawyers. Teachers, at every educational level, do this all the time and don't give a second thought to the rights of the original producers. I've even heard of some intentionally circumventing the security on dvds so the school can make a copy. If the situation were reversed I'm sure the school and the parents would be pretty upset to have the History Channel copy their video and show it.

The reaction as reported in the article is symptomatic of deep problems with this country. We are overbearingly puritanical, first to jump on the decency bandwagon and quick to find the 'best' place to slather the blame; and this is just the beginning of our problems as a society. I did notice though, that it has now been maybe a year since I have heard of any book burnings. Maybe we are making progress after all. We can only hope.

This article is hilarious! I fell on the floor laughing for about an hour. You'd think someone was murdered or something the way they are reacting to it. LMAO, it was a couple of seconds of porn, get real people. Most of these kids have probably already seen porn many times anyway, and most of them are sexually active. It was probably one of the student's tapes lol. Look how many teenage girls are knocked up in these schools. They're already doing it. People need to chill out and stop overracting about something as stupid as this. It's not even newsworthy at all, and parents and everyone are quoted in the article going on and on about it...please! It's freakin' hilarious! Laugh about it and get over it.

Poor kids. That is probably the only sex ed they'll ever receive in Cliff.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the parents showed the same outrage of the the "history" channel used as a learning tool. That channel marks February as its "Sniper" month. This is a direct dig at the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. It is a poor medium to learn about history.

If the parents showed this much attention to detail in say math/science/english scores of the students, imagine what a brighter world we'd have.

Hopefully the lesson learned will be that masturbation prevents teenage pregnancy.
