INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WKOW) -- There's a school lesson in Indiana that's making some parents and kids uncomfortable. The lesson is about curse words.
Teachers are encouraging the students to write the curse words on paper, on the classroom whiteboard and then say the words out loud. The students then learn why they are offensive. The teachers say it's a way to teach kids what not to say.
"Everyone was nervous about it and uncomfortable about it, to write it in front of an adult, especially a teacher," said 7th grade student Viazell Gaither.
The co-principal says in the past, this lesson has helped cut down on the amount of bad language students use. But some parents say their children are uncomfortable hearing the bad words in class.
