Florida Teacher Suspended After Giving Lil Wayne Lyrics as Homework
By Shannon Carlin
For years, teachers have been trying to make learning fun by incorporating pop culture touchstones that kids like. But one teacher in South Florida might have gone too far when he assigned Lil Wayne lyrics for homework.
According to WPTV in Florida, an unidentified middle school teacher from a charter school in Boynton Beach, FL was suspended last month after distributing the uncensored lyrics of Wayne’s song “Six Foot Seven Foot” to his students.
With lyrics like “You full of s***, you close your mouth and let yo’ a** talk” and “Never met the b****, but I f*** her like I missed her” it’s no surprise that some parents weren’t too happy with the assignment, which asked kids to underline examples of expressive language in the song.
