Teacher Assigns Students To Create A Terrorist Attack For Homework

Students at an Australian school were asked to plan a terrorist attack "to kill the MOST innocent civilians in order to get your message across" as part of a class assignment, Australian Associated Press (AAP) reported Wednesday.

The society and environment teacher at Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School in Western Australia asked Year 10 students -- aged about 16 -- to pretend they were a terrorist planning a chemical or biological attack in Australia.

One parent, who lost a family member among the 202 killed in the 2002 Bali bombings, complained to the local newspaper in the township of 30,000 people that the assignment was "offensive."

Grades were to be allocated based on students' ability to analyze information they had learned on terrorism and chemical and biological warfare and apply it to a real-life scenario.

Terry Marino, the principal of the school -- which is about 370 miles east of Perth -- said the assignment was inappropriate, and that the remorseful teacher was inexperienced and had no intention of offending, Australian public broadcaster ABC reported.

"The teacher, who is relatively inexperienced, made a well-intentioned but misguided attempt to engage the students in an assignment on contemporary conflict and how beliefs and values influence the behaviors and motives of individuals," Martino told the local newspaper.

Martino said he withdrew the assignment as soon as he heard of it.

To just say this teacher is "inexperienced" is really a lame excuse! Clearly this teacher had his/her own agenda and they were pushing it onto the students in the class.

What if someone had not come forward and brought this to the attention of the principal and the students went forward with this assignment. It said their grades would be based on how well they planned the attack. That is just frightening having children planning out how to kill innocent lives. It is home growing future terrorists, murderers, and serial killers in our opinion. Exposing young children to this kind of horror is only going to de-sensitize the children and they stop showing empathy, compassion and love to their fellow classmate and fellow man.

We are so thankful that parents came forward and made their voices heard and did not keep silent. This kind of behavior from teachers is not just in Australia but all over the world. Those who are suppose to teaching our children the basics of education like reading, writing, and arithmetic are clearly Not always teaching that. They are bringing their own agenda's into the classroom and in turn trying to brainwash and indoctrinate the minds of the worlds future generations.

If parents don't continue to fight for the minds of their children we will soon see a generation of zombies who walk around doing whatever they were brainwashed to do.
