A mayor in Ohio tell the five locals school board members to resign at a board meeting or face charges over class material for high school students he called it “child pornography”.
“It has come to my attention that your educators are basically distributing what is child pornography in the classroom,” Hudson Mayor Craig Shubert told the Hudson Board of Education at a meeting Monday.
“I spoke to a judge tonight. She has already confirmed it. So I will give you a simple choice: either you choose to resign from this school board or you will be charged,” added Shubert, who was met the cheers of the audience.

Shubert’s comments came in response to writing prompts found in a book titled “642 Things to Write About”, that had been distributed to certain tops students who were taking a credit course in college.
Materials included asking students to “write a sex scene that you wouldn’t show your mom”, “rewrite the sex scene from above into a scene that you would let your mom read”, and a another prompt asking students to drink a beer and describe how it tastes, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.
The material sparked a storm from parents, including speakers who also attended the board meeting and called the prompts “disgusting” and a form of “preparation.”

Hudson Town Schools Superintendent Phil Herman called the material “inappropriate and offensive writing prompts” in a prepared statement and said the books were taken from schools on Monday.
“The district immediately determined that this writing resource should not be in the hands of our students, and on Monday picked up the books from students enrolled in the course,” Herman said. “It is important to note that at no time were these inappropriate writing prompts assigned as part of the course.”

“We did not do our due diligence when reviewing this resource and as a result we overlooked several write prompts among the 642 that are not suitable for our high school audience,” Wilch said. “… We feel bad. At no point were any of these inappropriate prompts selected or discussed, but they were still there and they were visible, and you can’t ignore them. “
