California parents outraged as teacher asks students to 'draw White House, Obama under water'
Parents in California have expressed outrage after a school teacher told students to make images of the White House submerged underwater with someone drowning.
The unnamed instructor who was teaching a Digital Imaging class at Rancho Dominguez Prep School in Long Beach told students that not only must the White House be underwater, but someone in the scene had to be drowning.
"My (project) was the president being saved instead of drowning him... so I drowned his wife and the dog," a student Carnal Washington told CBS Los Angeles.
"I felt bad. It didn't feel right drowning the president," he added.
According the Daily Mail, Washington said that the student with the highest praise did more than just put the president underwater.
"The highest grade in the class was a girl who had Obama swimming toward a bucket of chicken instead of his family," the paper quoted him, as saying.
"I thought that was sad, but when (the teacher) saw it, he started laughing," he added.
