'Educational programme' outrage

A primary school teacher has had her knuckles rapped after accidentally exposing her 10-year-old pupils to a pornographic video.

According to the Sun, the unnamed schoolmarm took her own VCR into St Helen's Church of England School in Abbotsham, Devon, intending to show the young 'uns an "educational programme".

The tape she'd left in the machine proved educational indeed*, and although she "hurriedly turned it off", four wide-eyed kiddies were exposed to "inappropriate material".

The teacher has now been "disciplined", but that's not good enough for apoplectic parents who say they weren't immediately informed of the outrage two weeks ago.

One mother fulminated: "We are absolutely shocked and disgusted to hear about this. We are swaying from anger to outrage and embarrassment. We feel parents should have been told a lot sooner. Now it feels as though the school were trying to keep it quiet."

Devon County Council defended itself by saying that mums and dads "have been kept fully informed of the school's actions agreed by the headteacher and the chair of governors".

In case you're wondering what porn-punting primary school teachers look like, the Sun has an impressive pic right here. ®

* The "stunned class ... stared open-mouthed at the screen as they watched porn stars engage in an explicit act", the Mail elaborates.
