Houghton Mifflin’s Channel One asks third graders about “dirty dancing”

January 31, 2016

From Jim Metrock:

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Channel One wants schoolchildren, down to eight, to tackle the important issue of dirty dancing.

HMH’s Channel One News maintains one website for all its student audiences, ranging from high school seniors to third grade students.  Channel One recently ask students, “Do you think schools should cancel dances because of indecent dancing?”

Ugh. Evidently Channel One devoted time on its in-school TV show to covering a school that cancelled school dances because “hundreds” of students were dancing indecently. What a waste of school time and what an inappropriate topic to be directing at middle school and elementary schoolchildren.

This recklessness has defined Channel One over the years.

Luckily not many children visit Channelone.com as you can see by the number of “likes” and comments on this post.
