Teacher shows nude videos to 7th-graders

Parents of children who attend a Missouri middle school are outraged after hearing that a teacher showed videotapes to seventh-graders that included images of male genitals.

According to a report by KTVI-TV in St. Louis, students at Crestview Middle School in Ellisville, Mo., said teacher Bob Shea showed them German videos containing the images and profane language.

Though Shea, who teaches German, claims the showing was an accident, students say the films were shown on more than one occasion. The teacher reportedly showed the videos as a way to prove that Germans have a sense of humor.

"I haven't intentionally done anything wrong," Shea told the TV station. "I accidentally showed a wrong clip."

In a letter to parents, Shea says he made a rookie mistake by not previewing the films before showing them to his students.

One of the videos apparently showed nude German skydivers and highlighted one of the men's genitals. Another reportedly showed a man rushing into a German classroom in a horror movie character costume and exposing himself.

"It's unacceptable, very appalling and it should not happen," one parent is quoted as saying.

According to KTVI, the school board will meet tomorrow to discuss the matter.

Was it the congressional report on C-Span?

When I was a child I was exposed to graphic depictions of nude bodies and sexual acts and even saw a depiction of rape.

Of course, this was all on a visit to the Metropolitan Museum and I didn't know what Sabine women were anyway!

I would live off of beach snails and cook on a wood stove before I'd send one of my kids to a public school today.

horror. horror.

They are in the 7th grade, they will get over seeing a peep and will not become deviant due to this experience. As for profanity... 7th graders can teach their elders today.

There were once civilizations that glorified the beauty of the human form, though not in the form of a flaccid dink flapping in the wind on camera presented to minority children...

Yea the mighty have fallen far.

We finally learn the cause of your deviancy.

What in the HEdoublepucky is going on with the public education system? Thank the Lord I no longer have younger children and that I was able to provide them with private education.

Circumcision too? Must be a health class...

When I was in the third grade, our AG teacher showed "Clash of the Titans" to our class. I remember a comment to the effect of "there's a little nudity, but I think you can handle it." That was in 1984 or so. I don't recall any of the kids saying a peep...
