A French teacher has been suspended after allegedly making his students
write their own suicide notes as a homework assignment according to Fox
The Telegraph reports the local school authority found out about the
assignment after a group of parents complained, saying they were horrified
their children, between ages 13 and 14, were given the assignment.
The assignment supposedly read: "You've just turned 18 and have
decided to end your life. Your decision appears irrevocable. As a final effort,
you decide to explain the reasons for your act. In setting out your
self-portrait, you describe all the disgust you feel for yourself. Your text
must bring up certain events in your life at the root of this feeling."
The Telegraph reports one parent told a local paper her son received the
critique that his "suicide note" was "not precise enough"
from the teacher.
"Telling a pupil that he is about to end his life
and that he must recount it appears troubling to us, said Jean-Marie Renault,
the local education authority head, who confirmed to the The Telegraph that the
teacher had been suspended.
