Mom Upset With Son's Homework on Herpes, Drinking, One-Night Stand

LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (PIX11) — A New Jersey mother is shocked about an assignment that asked her eighth-grade son to consider what he would do if he contracted herpes after drinking and having a one-night stand.

Amy Loper says her son was given the homework in his language arts class at the Powell Elementary School in Lawrence Township.

The question describes drinking and hooking up with a stranger.

Loper says while the assignment might be better suited for a sex education class, she believes it does not belong in language arts.

She contacted the school and said she was told it is part of the core curriculum that ties into a book students were given titled "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens."

Her son did not do the assignment.
