ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) – Students and parents alike were taken aback by a local high school teacher’s homework assignment.
According to CBS affiliate WGCL-TV, a teacher at Kell High School in Marietta gave her students an assignment that asked them to compare the leader-induced ideological shifts in different countries – specifically, between Vladimir Lenin’s and Joseph Stalin’s communist influences on Russia and President Barack Obama’s alleged push to change America from a capitalist society to a socialist one.
The assignment was subsequently brought to the attention of the school’s principal, who ordered the homework to be withdrawn from the students’ assignments.
The station spoke with Cobb County School District spokesman Jay Dillon on the matter, who claimed the teacher was a substitute for a social studies class.
Though the assignment was rescinded, the educator who assigned the homework is still presently employed at Kell High School, WGCL-TV additionally learned.
