(AllHipHop Rumors) Oh lawd! A Bethune Middle School music teacher [outside of Atlanta] in Dekalb County, Ga. was suspended after he assigned his students homework that included lyrics from Kodak Black's verse on A Boogie's "Drowning."
The teacher seems to have meant well as the students' challenge was to turn the explicit lyrics into something positive.
One of the students mother's, Crishana Wright, told WSB-TV that she doesn't really see how you can make it positive. She went on to say that she understood the intention, but she feels like the assignment wasn't thought out.
“You’re dealing with children’s minds; you have to be very cautious,” said Wright.
The school's superintendent of the school responded to the incident stating,
“The assignment was inappropriate, unacceptable and contrary to our standards. The employee responsible has been removed from the classroom and will be held accountable for such poor judgment. While we encourage teacher creativity, the expectation is that the instruction is always standards-based and age appropriate.”
Some of the lyrics that were included in the assignment were:
“Harley Davidson every day, I’m ridin’ with the chopper/ They hatin’, I know they don’t wanna see a n-gga prosper/ I ain’t doing trims, I’m in the cut like I’m a barber/ She call me daddy, but I ain’t her motherf-cking father.”
Eh, even I'm sitting here like, "Why?" What are your thoughts?
