When a child brings a school assignment home you expect book reports or math homework, but not rap lyrics. Especially lyrics with explicit language in it.

That’s exactly what happened to the Wright family when their daughter Kalani came home with just that on Tuesday night.

According to WSB-TV news, the child’s middle school teacher in Atlanta handed out sheets with explicit lyrics from rapper Kodak Black. The assignment was to change the lyrics into something the students found positive.

“It was against everything I try to teach them, you know?” says Crishana Wright who was stunned by the assignment.

On top of having explicit in the lyrics, the song also featured sexually suggested lyrics.

Sixth-grader Kalani Wright explained that as soon as she saw the sheet that, “My mom would be mad.”

Crishana Wright brought this to the school districts attention. She understood the idea behind the assignment but believed that it had no place in a school.

The Delkab County school district released a statement saying:

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.

  1. Ya’ll gotta stay away from knee jerk reactions and attempts to be “funny” by demoralizing the teacher in this situation and really attempt at comprehending what’s happening. This teacher was making an honest effort to (1) reach the kids on their level with music they probably hear on a daily basis (2) take some of the crazy nonsense lyrics and give the kids the opportunity to turn it into something POSITIVE. This could have been handled in a different manner & it unfortunately is going to make a teacher that really wanted to try, not want to anymore.

      I see your point Anthony, but with today’s climate do you really think this was appropriate to give the kids these lyrics? Imagine for a second, your 6th grader came home with this assignment? Do you think you’d still have this reaction? Or would you be wondering what the hell was this teacher smoking. The school board explained it appropriately, we allow the teachers to be creative and that’s a good thing, but you just have to be creatively smart about it. Make it so, it doesn’t anyone. I can’t imagine he/she didn’t think this would upset some parents.

        Gosh! Parents allow children to listen to the crap but act fools when a teacher tries to use what they have allowed to be embedded in the child’s mind and turn it into correct grammar. Laws need to be harder on the parents. I’m a teacher at a federal prison and I have taught math to inmates based on what they know from the streets. For someone like me who knows nothing about cooking meth or cutting cocaine, can you imagine my lesson on quadratic equations. I had to reach them where they were and bring them out. This really pisses me off. Bad parenting gets to lay their screwup on a teacher trying to correct their mess.

    age appropriate? hahaha, I’m not even old enough to read this garbage, and I’ve been out of school for 200 years now lol.
    Wow this was very poor judgement, perhaps the teacher could use more education.
