WWW.DAILYMAIL.CO.UK reported: A Connecticut school under fire for sending eighth-graders an assignment asking them to compare their favorite and least favorite pizza toppings to their sexual preferences is now calling it a ‘mistake.’

Others spoke out at another board meeting on Tuesday, with Jonathan Grande saying: ‘The assignment was crude, it lacked good taste,’ and Tracy Jarvis saying it ‘is prompting kids to become sexually active before their time.
‘Youth don’t even know how to navigate platonic relationships, so why introduce sexual relationships?’
‘We should not be encouraging youth to explore each other’s bodies with multiple partners in an open environment for any reason,’ she continued. ‘If somebody is doing that or asking them to do that they should tell a responsible adult, who then reports it.
