Outrage after government school teacher tells students to report contents of family medicine cabinets
Parents of some junior high school students are outraged after a teacher gave their kids an assignment that seriously invaded their privacy, without even notifying them. According to Fox 13 Salt Lake City, a “health” teacher at Mapleton Junior High in Utah have student a “homework” assignment to raid the family’s medicine cabinets and report back to her with the contents therein.
The assignment was made public by parent Onika Nugent, who posted it to Facebook and sent a note to both the teacher and principal, in which she said “Although it may be a good idea for parents to do an inventory of their medicine cabinet, I believe it is inappropriate for students to counsel their parents, or report to the school what that inventory is. It is a complete invasion of privacy.” The administration claims they were “blindsided” and that they had “no idea” the assignment was given.
