A geometry teacher in Alameda, California, has been suspended after suggesting that students who wanted to boost their grades look for their parents' contraceptives and take "selfies" with them. While Encinal High School officials are dismissing the assignment as a joke, at least one student took teacher Wing-Wah Leung seriously. That student's selfie was shown as an example in class.
Valerie Huber, executive director of the National Abstinence Education Association, says even if it was a prank, it's something parents need to be wary of.
"... It's sending a disturbing message to teens, to youths that any kind of sexual experimentation, discussion, and encroaching on privacy, even of parents, is a green light," says Huber. "And that's certainly not the message that our schools and our teachers should be communicating."
