Oregon parents say they’re ready to recall the school board after allegations of sexually explicit lessons were left unaddressed.
The trouble started when parents discovered an assignment that asked high school students in Eugene’s 4J School District to write about a sexual fantasy that had “NO penetration of any kind or oral sex.”
“You will choose 3 items (romantic music, candles, massage oil, feather, feather boa, flavored syrup, etc) to use in your story,” the instructions said, according to Fox News. “Your story should show that you can show and receive loving physical affection without having sex.”
Students allegedly complained the male teacher also used a spinning wheel with different sex act on it to ask students whom they would choose to perform such sex acts with.
The school admitted to the sexual fantasy writing assignment, but denied the allegations on the spinning wheel assignment, weakly saying the charges had “not been substantiated,” Fox News reported.
However, Justin McCall, whose daughter complained about the spinning wheel, claims that the school is lying.
He says the teacher in question hasn’t been fired because he’s also the school’s football coach and the team is doing well.
“If you do not remove him, I’m giving you my word today that tomorrow morning I will go down to the County Clerk’s office and I will file for the removal of every single one of you,” McCall said as the room erupted in cheers at a Mar. 16 board meeting.
McCall has since been banned from school district property and from communicating directly with the school over the charges.
In May, elections will be held for four of the seven school board positions, and parents have vowed to start the recall process if changes don’t come via the election.
Dr. Michael Bratland, a conservative candidate for the May election, said the problem is that the board isn’t taking responsibility for solving the district’s problems.
“The school board’s the top and they need to take responsibility and when I was at that school board meeting last week, I didn’t really hear anybody take accountability,” Bratland told Fox.
