A class at Churchville-Chili Middle School intended to teach students the dangers of Shaken Baby Syndrome is drawing controversy, after a Facebook post by a parent questioning the subject matter took on a life of its own.
The school district has investigated, and said in a statement that the allegations are not accurate, but said in the future, a counselor will be on hand in the classroom during the lesson.
The class is Family and Consumer Sciences. It's designed to prepare students to become life ready.Hard to tell if this is over-reaction on the part of a few students or a not fully thought through presentation on the part of the instructor ( and let me say that I've been to a few NYS FCS meetings and talked to several FCS classes, and the teachers I've met there are an amazing group of talented educators).
