Teacher Suspended For Using Lil Wayne Lyrics As English Homework

When her students were having trouble grasping literary devices such as similes and puns, a Florida teacher at Charter Schools of Boynton Beach assigned more colloquial material to help her pupils reach a better understanding. But her choice literature is not what you’d normally deem appropriate for eight graders. Certainly not by the parent of one said eighth grader, who was outraged when her son came home repeating the explicit lyrics to Lil’ Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” song.

School administration claims the assignment, which asked students to decrypt figurative language in Wayne’s single off the Carter IV LP, was not approved. Headmaster Wayne Owens released a statement to WBTV News Channel 5 explaining the teacher, who is suspended for three days, recognizes the assignment was “inappropriate.”
