Eastside parent upset over slang dictionary
Placeholder Image
A Dictionary of “Good, Clean Slang” given to students at Eastside Elementary as part of a homework assignment has at least one mother upset.“It encourages everything we should be discouraging,” said parent Wanda Davis. “Bullies use words to hurt other students, but this dictionary says some of those are good, clean humor.”Eastside principal Doug Reed says the dictionary was part of a homework assignment that is now being taken out of context. Students, not teacher, offered the words for the dictionary.“Students were given the slang version of ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ by Hans Christian Andersen,” Reed said.
