Hudson mayor asks ENTIRE school board to resign after kids told to 'write sex scene'
Minor students in the school’s Liberal Arts II writing class were asked to 'write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom'
HUDSON, OHIO: Hudson city mayor has demanded the resignation of an entire school board. He was angry that minor students in the school’s Liberal Arts II writing class were asked to “write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom”. During the school board meeting, Craig Shubert said, “It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom.”
He added on Monday, September 13: “ I’ve spoken to a judge this evening and she’s already confirmed that. So I’m going to give you a simple choice: either choose to resign from this board of education or you will be charged.” The prompt in question was one of the inappropriate assignments in the book ‘642 Things To Write About' that was given to students.

A parent, Monica Havens, revealed some of the prompts from the book at the board meeting. They included topics such as, “Choose how you will die,” “Write a scene that begins: ‘It was the first time I killed a man,’” “Describe your favorite part of a man’s body using only verbs,” “You have a dream that you’ve murdered someone. Who is it, how and why did the murder happen, and what happens afterward?”, “You are a serial killer. What TV shows are on your DVR list? Why?”, “The kill fee,” “You have just been caught in bed by a jealous spouse. How will you talk your way out of this?”, “Write a sermon for a beloved preacher who has been caught in a sex scandal,” and “Describe a time when you wanted to orgasm but couldn’t,” among many others.
Reports said the book was given to the students of that particular class in association with Hiram College for college credit. Havens said she got to know about this writing assignment from a friend and then confirmed it with her daughter. She said, “I asked my daughter if she had been reading a book with inappropriate stuff in it and she said yes,” before adding: “I can't even wrap my brain around as a teacher, I don't care if it's for college credit, these are minors. When these topics are encouraged and read by adults, that is pedophilia. This is grooming, and all of you need to be replaced. You have dedicated yourself to woke social justice.”
The angry mother, who earlier worked as a teacher for over a decade, also went on to claim that the book had been on the curriculum for more than a half-decade. She slammed the board by saying, “You have allowed the sexualization of our youth and grooming material to be approved for classroom content. Each and every one of you should be ashamed.”
Erik Dirker, a cop with Stow city, also attended the school board meeting and criticized them by saying, “Police officers wear body cameras to monitor their behavior, and they have brief interactions with the public. You guys have our kids all day and we don’t know what’s going on in the classrooms.” He added: “I demand that there be cameras in classrooms as a matter of public record that we can pull and view what is being taught to our kids and what is being said to our kids.”
Hudson High School Principal Brian Wilch accepted his mistake and noted, “There are times we need to take a step back, reflect and get better,” before saying, "We did not exercise our due diligence when we reviewed this resource and we overlooked several prompts that were not appropriate. We felt terrible — you can’t unsee [the writing prompts].” It has also been said that Hudson High School apologized for its mistake and is working towards taking back the books from the students.
