Students Watch Porn In Class By Accident

Filed under: In The News, Weird But True

A substitute teacher in Denver accidentally played a pornographic DVD for his students. That teacher was not Tom Berenger.This just goes to show that sometimes too much technology in the classroom can be a bad idea.

A substitute teacher at a Denver high school got quite a shock when he went to play a movie his class was scheduled to watch.

According to news reports, the sub was looking for the video when he found an unmarked DVD in the regular teacher's laptop. Unfortunately, what popped up was more Sex Ed than Geography. Yup, after hitting play a raunchy porn appeared on the computer screen. Luckily, the teacher was able to quickly shut it off and film wasn't projected overhead for the entire class to see.

East High School Principal John Youngquist sent a letter to parents assuring them that "The movie was on the computer screen for just a few seconds." The Principal also said that "Approximately six students [out of a class of 23] may have seen the computer screen while the porn film was playing."

Of course, even the few seconds of the skin flick was enough to send the freshman and sophomores into shock -- well, at least briefly before they broke out in a fit of laughter.

While it's likely the students survived the incident emotionally unscathed (and let's be honest, some of them have probably already checked out a naughty movie or two on their own time), Youngquist assures us that "The students who may have seen the DVD were spoken with and their parents were contacted prior to the end of the school day yesterday. The physical and emotional safety of every student is of great importance to us at East High School."


How would you react if your son or daughter was in class and accidentally saw some porn? Should the school punish the teacher? Or have they done enough damage control?
