A small article in London’s Jewish Chronicle (registration required) reports that a teacher was fired after conducting a lesson about Judaism at Carlisle’s Trinity School. Why? She assigned a class of 12 year-olds to draw a picture of a circumcised penis. Headmaster Robert Birtwell said that the lesson was not “within the scheme of work set out for religious studies,” and the teacher faces a lifetime classroom ban. However, she might consider buying a Sharpie to conduct her curriculum of doodling dicks, snipped or not, in the boys’ bathroom.
You have got to be kidding me! What is the importance in that? How is that teaching about Judaism? This is awful, just awful.
Some people have no sense!
