As soon as the disturbed mothers caught wind of the request, they contacted school administrators at Encinal High School in Alameda, only to be told that the teacher in question (his identity hasn’t been revealed to the press) most likely told his students the assignment was “a joke.”
Cobene didn’t see it has a laughing matter, however. She’d heard that one student took the assignment at face value:
“From what I understand, a student actually did it, and he used that as an example of what it should look like for the other students.”Garcia added:
“If the kids took it as a joke, then why did one kid take it serious and actually did the extra credit work, and was shown as an example in class?’An investigation of the incident is supposedly underway, but Encinal High School officials are mum on any direct action meted out against the teacher in question.
‘We don’t feel comfortable with our children in his presence.”
