We aimed so much lower when I was in High School.
We would have been happy to be rewarded with pizza.
Or an entire school period devoted to napping.
W.Va. students caught screening ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ during class
The filmography request was made by a group of Hampshire County students who asked their teacher, who was ignorant of the film’s content, if they could watch it as a reward for good work.
“Fortunately, an assistant principal walked by and saw what they were doing,” said school principal Jeff Woofter. “They got there 10 minutes after it started and shut it down.”
Hampshire County school policy prohibits students from watching movies of any kind in the classroom.
“We don’t do that,” Woofter said.
The identity of the teacher has not been disclosed.
“I will say it was an extreme lack of judgment from an otherwise very capable teacher,” Woofter said. “The teacher didn’t do a background check on the movie or even ask about it.”
But wait….here’s the BEST PART:
A report looking at social media activity mentioning the movie compiled by Facebook found that West Virginia had the most likes, shares and posts leading up to its release last year. (source – Charleston Daily Mail)
