Shame on the parent that reported directly t the police. Why not talk to the teacher first? Shame on the superintendent who did not step forward and support her teacher; typical of Marianne O'Connor!
Kids today are exposed to more than what the teacher had the students view. I am not at all saying these videos are appropriate...but it was part of a lesson and the teacher was trying to bring out points pertaining to the videos.
This parent should be so should state your name...but too embarassed to do so...
I read a comment that this parent must be the typical parent to immediately go to the police...
a real complainer....
this is definitely true...SHAME ON YOU!!!!
Your child must be embarassed and she will be looked upon as her father being a troublemaker and had a teacher resign because of HIS bad choice...
The teacher did nothing wrong!!!!!!

I think that every teacher in Westborough is sickened by this. Problem is, they are not likely to officially protest because they fear retribution. This is where parents come in. Since every parent (save for a couple) is probably also sickened by this, or should be, you need to email the Chief, the Superintendent, the School Committee, and the Selectmen to ASK that these polices be reviewed and changed to prevent the same thing from happening again. That's all. Just ASK. The teachers deserve it.

Seems kind of harsh, especially since the kids probably see WAY worse on their PCs and smart phones on a daily basis. The helicopter parents that contacted the police should have had the balls to confront the teacher first. That's what I would have done.
