A Utah school is apologizing after a ninth grade teacher assigned students to draw a propaganda poster for ISIS.
The teacher, who’s been on the job for just a few months, gave the in-class assignment to students in her two World Civics classes at Salem Junior High School in Salem, Utah, on Wednesday. About 60 students received the assignment, which required them to create a “neat, colored, professional” poster for the terrorist group, to “help students better understand the goals of terrorist groups and the methods they use to gain support,” the assignment read.
The teacher included a note asking students to come forward if they felt uncomfortable with the assignment. None did, Lana Hiskey, a spokeswoman for the Nebo School District where the school is located, told ABC News.
But some parents did not think the assignment was appropriate, especially after six coordinated terrorist attacks last week in Paris have left 130 dead.
