Do you remember drama class in middle school? You probably did skits about things like summer camp or unrequited love expressed through song or injecting crystal meth, right?
A drama teacher at Erin Mills Middle Schoolin Mississauga, Ontario, is under fire for his “unique” homework assignment.
Originally the project involved making an original skit about an old TV show using emotions. When the groups idea fell through, it’ssaid the teacher suggested acrystal meth skit instead.
This came as a shock to Delight Greenidge, who was confused when her thirteen-year-old son came home from school and asked how to make a tourniquet for an assignment.
I popped a blood vessel, she said. I was in a state of shock Im thinking this cannot be real.
According to Greenidges son, the unnamed grade eighth teacher printed out the instructions as part of an acting assignment, and instructed the students to act scared when making the drug, and to act happy when injecting it.
The double-sided printout had instructions on where to source materials to make the drug including a list of ingredients, as well as how to inject it.
Im reading this thing and my eyes are just swelling as Im reading it and I think my blood pressure went up by about 50 points because it is detailed, step-by-step, blueprint instructions on what you need to make crystal meth, how to prepare the crystal meth and then how to inject yourself with crystal meth, she said.
She went on to say it’s mind-boggling.
“It could undo a lot of what I taught him because sometimes he would think the things the teacher says are sometimes more important than the things mum says,” she said. “They do have that influence and impact.
Carla Pereira, manager of communications for the Peel District School Board, confirmed the teacher handed out the instructions to some students.
She couldnt speak to the rationale behind the teachers decision to use the materials, but said the incident was shocking and inappropriate.
The teacher has been suspended without pay, and the school board is now conducting an investigation.
Greenridge, however, wonders why it happened in the first place.
To think that all of what Ive tried so hard to teach him good principles, good values, moral character the things that make you a man, a strong black man, and this is what an educator is giving to my child, she said.
