Bizarre Extra Credit

How times have changed!

But not for the better.

According to Selfie With Parents’ Sex Toys? Alameda Teacher Accused Of Assigning Bizarre Extra Credit For Sophomores at CBS in the San Francisco area (June 3, 2015):
ALAMEDA (CBS SF) — Parents of students at Encinal High School in Alameda want a [geometry] teacher fired after they say he sent them home with an extra credit assignment of finding sex toys and condoms in their parents’ private drawers, and taking a selfie with what they find.

Mothers Kimberly Cobene and Evangeline Garcia heard about the sex toy selfie last month from a counselor at an afterschool program their sophomore daughters attend.

“It was to go into your parents’ private drawers or whatever to seek out sexual toys or condoms, or anything of that nature and to take a selfie with it,” Cobene said.

Encinal High administrators implied to the moms that the assignment may have been a joke, but not every student saw it that way.


When asked why the teacher was still teaching, or even on campus, Susan Davis of the Alameda Unified School District said, “I can’t give you details about that because it’s an ongoing investigation.”...

In what world is a teacher who even mentions such an extra-credit assignment not immediately fired?


  1. # In what world is a teacher who even mentions such an extra-credit assignment not immediately fired?

    In a world where an airline attendant is fired for opening a can of Diet Coke.

    1. A story that differs from Tahera Ahmad's story about the airline attendant and the Diet Coke.

    2. I never heard of this story until your link. Wow! It doesn't sound like United talked to other passengers. They need to restore that attendant and tell the passenger she can keep her sorry ass parked at Northwestern University (where she's a chaplain).

    3. An anonymous account from where?
      Not strong credibility, AOW?

    4. Duck,
      Anonymity could be a personal-safety precaution.

  2. Blackmailing parents must be a new "start-up" industry in California....

  3. Popular Culture's incessant emphasis –– mostly through Rock, Heavy Metal, Rap, and whiny C&W –– on the Coarse, Bizarre, Grotesque, Uncouth, Abnormal, Insulting, Disrespectful, Iconoclastic, Degenerate, Self-Pitying, proudly Unattractive, and fiercely Rebellious has taken its toll.

    Incidents like the one described are the natural byproduct of a militantly anti-Christian, aggressively immoral culture that celebrates carelessness and sloth as it glorifies depravity, lauds godlessness, ridicules propriety and cynically regards godliness as hopelessly out of date, unbearably square, decidedly "uncool," and hypocritical –– at best.

    What else could we expect after decades upon decades of ruthless, relentless, systematic conditioning by perverse magnates of Pop Culture and Miseducation who work hand-in-glove with The Oligarchs who have been determined to infantilize, weaken, corrupt and thus enslave us for over a century?

  4. San Francisco, California

    That explains it all

    1. Los Angeles-Santa Monica-Hollywood are far worse.

  5. It's hard to believe that teacher is not immediately on administrative leave, if the news reports is true, and he allowed a student to present such pictures in class. Obviously, they have to investigate and verify truth. Talk to the counselor and students, etc. And, frankly, I'd be pretty hot if his assignment was to dig the most colorful T-shirt out of your parent's drawer and show it.

    Now.... what if his assignment had involved being critical of the global warming religion's tenets? Think he'd been in the classroom today?

  6. Public school teachers are grossly overpaid to do this.....

    This is why education sinks in America.

  7. Exactly. Teachers unions strongly fight merit pay, and while very good teachers deserve high pay, the unions insist that the bad teachers get the same high pay (when they should be paid far less, or fired). This is what bankrupts school systems.

  8. AOW asked:

    "In what world is a teacher who even mentions such an extra-credit assignment not immediately fired?"

    To answer your question. A world with the NEA, which has "education" in its name and treats education the same way the American Cancer Society treats cancer. It exists to make bad teachers rich and keep them in the classroom, and any time the NEA succeeds, the quality of education itself takes a blow. And the situation bankrupts governments all across the land, and it is also pure corruption: the Democrat Party makes sure that teachers are forced to join the NEA against their will, and in return, the NEA forces teachers to give millions to Democrat Party campaigns.

    I look forward to the day when the NEA is treated as the KKK (and has very rare membership) and is forced to pay back every dime it has stolen from teachers.
