Teacher Has Kids Write About Whom They’d Murder

He said it was a horrible mistake he regrets. Michael Maxwell said the request to describe how students would carry out a murder was merely a writing exercise. Maxwell teaches a beginning drafting class and it’s not clear why he asked the class to write fiction.

School officials in St. Joseph said the teacher will likely keep his job. – milwa

We didn’t some very different things when I took drafting.
