An Oregon high school has parents livid after it was discovered that a health teacher assigned homework asking students to write sexual fantasy stories and mark the initials of a man or woman next to the sexual activities they would perform.

First reported by local television news station KEZI in the city of Eugene, a parent exposed the assignment via a screenshot on Facebook, which asked students at Churchill High School to “write a short story of a paragraph or two […about] a sexual fantasy that will have NO penetration of any kind or oral sex (no way of passing an STI).”

According to The Oregonian, Kirk Miller, health teacher and football coach, gave the assignment to students taking Churchill’s Health 2 – Human Sexuality course, which directs the class to show that minors could “receive loving affection without having sex” while choosing three items for the story.

Such items could include “romantic music, candles, massage oil, feather, feather boa, flavored syrup, etc.”

Hundreds of comments flooded the post within an hour of the screenshot being made public on social media.

“This is so inappropriate,” one post read. “Does he still have a job?”

Another parent expressed outrage over the idea of an adult male teacher asking their daughter to share sexual fantasies with him.

“I would be livid and be going to the police,” the comment said. “No teacher has any business asking this of a child.”

Katherine Rogers, whose 16-year-old daughter attends the high school but was not in the class, told The Oregonian that Miller previously gave the students another assignment that encouraged bisexuality, called “With Whom Would You Do It?”

The classwork required students to initial males and females that the student “would do each activity with,” which were sexual in nature, such as kissing and oral sex.

“You may use the same person for multiple activities,” the assignment added.

Rogers said students in the class felt “mortified, awkward, and creeped out” by the assignments.

Out of feeling uncomfortable with the assignment, Rogers said some students used “Kung Fu Panda” characters in their response to avoid being too personal.

“So while we are teaching our daughter to abstain from sex, her high school health teacher is asking her to pick out sexual partners and swing both ways,” one mother told The Epoch Times.

Churchill High School Principal Missy Cole said in an email sent to parents last week that school officials and Eugene school district officials were reviewing its high school health curriculum, which is called Our Whole Lives, developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ.

“At this time, the assignment has been removed from the class syllabus and will not be a part of students’ grades,” Cole wrote, according to The Epoch Times. “The Our Whole Lives curriculum is utilized by many districts across the state and is endorsed by the Oregon Department of Education.”

Peter Rudy, a spokesperson for the Oregon Department of Education, told The Oregonian last week that the state’s list of recommended instructional material for high school health courses does not include the curriculum in question.

Rudy told the outlet that Oregon school districts could choose curriculums not listed with the state-recommended materials and do not have to notify the Oregon Department of Education. State officials, he said, are not required to track what curriculum districts choose.

The Epoch Times reported that Oregon schools have lost 34,000 students and rank 41st in the nation for education, with one of the worst graduation rates in America.

Mackensey Pulliam of Oregon Moms Union told The Epoch Times in an email that such learning material does not belong in schools.

“The Oregon education system is failing our kids with less than 45 percent reading at grade level and less than 32 percent able to do math at grade level,” Pulliam said. “We need to be focusing on academics and catching our kids up on years of pandemic-related learning loss. The purpose of our schools is to set students up for success as they enter the workforce or higher education, not to teach them about sexual fantasies.”
