  • Christian School Kicks Out 8yo For Not Taking Picture In A Bathtub

    Looks like Florida has some more grooming problems than just public schools.

    Sorry but if you sent home instructions to one of my daughters at age 8 telling her to take a picture of herself in the bathtub with her homework, Im going to assume you're a pedophile, straight up and will be treated as such.

    Thats just not appropriate on any plane of existence.

    Misty and Christopher Dunham were shocked to see their 8-year-old's homework assignment earlier this week.

    "She proceeded to read to me that she needed to do her reading homework in the bathtub and send a picture of her doing it," said Christopher Dunham. "And specifically told her to stop, you will not."

    Parents are supposed to sign off on the homework, but the Dunhams noted that their daughter would not be taking part in that activity.
    "Emailed the teacher, 'Hey you may want to explain this, send something out to the parents let them know what the intentions are, this just does not sound okay,'" said Misty Dunham. "She did send the message saying you should be in pajamas, be in your uniform, have fun with it. But it didn't sit right."

    Misty Dunham reached out to the school administration and later to police to document the incident. The report says the parents were told by administrators "we have been sending this homework assignment for years and you're the only one complaining about it."

    Police advised the parents not to take the photo. Later, the Dunham family says they got a call from the school.

    "I think you guys should do a parental withdraw for McKenzie," said Misty Dunham. "And I said,' I can't. I can't do that. We refuse to withdraw her.' He said, 'Ok thank you for saying that' and continued on saying that, 'Well, we're going to proceed with an administration withdraw.'"

    The Dunham family picked up paperwork, indicating their daughter is no longer a student at Victory Christian Academy.

    "No explanation," said Misty Dunham.

    The Dunhams believe this sends the wrong message in two ways.

    "A bathtub is not appropriate for a child to take a picture," said Misty Dunham.
    "She did some thing right by telling mom and dad that she wasn't comfortable with something and now she's no longer in school over it," said Christopher Dunham.

    So, just out of curiosity, the "bathtub picture" was supposed to be with them fully dressed, either in PJs or school uniform?

    Asking for a friend.

    (And, yeah, that's still really weird)
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      Still trying to noodle out how a tradition of taking pictures of students in PJs or school uniform sitting in a bathtub doing their homework even starts.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        From the story: "[The teacher] did send the message saying you should be in pajamas, be in your uniform, have fun with it," so, yes, it sounds like a bit of silliness despite Gond's click-bait thread title appearing to suggest otherwise. Surely there is more to this story than what is being told in the news report. I can't imagine a school suddenly withdrawing a student simply because her parents objected to an assignment.

        Edit: A quick search around the web shows that every other news outlet that picked up this story just ran a copy and paste of the text presented in the opening post, which seems a little suspicious. I can find no other information.

          The assignment didn't say.

            that's just as creepy my dude. Anyone asking a child to take pictures of themselves in a bathtub wearing ANYTHING is simply not acceptable. On any level. And a Christian school given the pedophilia issues in the religion makes it evemind-boggling..

            And sorry but my title was 100 percent factual not "click-bait".

            News orgs regularly reprint, that's not suspicious that's pretty common practice.

                Found this from the school:

                Jesse Latta, the pastor of Victory Baptist Church and president of the school, told WJAX that the assignment “was taken out of an online teacher resource and has been used in many schools.” He said in a statement, “When a parent contacted our teacher with a complaint, our teacher immediately sent out correspondence to all parents in the class to assure them that there were no bad intentions with this assignment and to clarify the guidelines. No additional concerns were presented to the teacher." Latta added, “While the assignment was completely innocent, out of an abundance of caution and for there to be no misunderstandings, our administration has removed this particular assignment for any future use. We value our children and their safety is our top priority. We will continue to serve the children and families in which the Lord has graciously allowed us to have a part in their lives.” However, the pastor did not address the "administrative withdrawal" of the student, per the report.


                It is starting to look more and more like some goofy idea someone dreamed up to make homework "fun" (and maybe to get them to do it), and it became part of the curriculum in several schools, and less like some sort of perverse request.

                How this resulted in the girl being kicked out of school is what seems to be the real mystery. That seems to be a massive overreaction and indicates that there may be a lot more to this story than this initial report.

                  The more sensible thing, of their tale has any truth to it, is instead of doubling down and giving further instructions of what to wear in their creepy tub pic, would have been to send out an email apologizing and telling them they don't need to perform said creepy action and that there was an oversight with an online resource, etc , etc., and an apology for it happening.

                  And of course the then tripling-down via trying to get the parents to withdraw their kid and then quadrupling down by forcing a withdrawal...... that's just mindboggling.

                    This is why I suspect that there may be a lot more to this story. Maybe not, but it sure looks that way.

                      Why? When they are fully dressed. Would you have the same objection if they asked for a similar picture if they were standing in a shower?

                      This has all the hallmarks of someone trying to come up with a way to make homework fun.

                        because its not appropriate. In any way dhape or form.

                        Yes. No one should be asking my 8 year old child to take pictures of themselves in the bathroom. Ever. If you don't see the potential grooming behavior in that, well, I only hope your own kids have as much sense as this one did because you clearly didn't pass it on.

                          I'm with Gond on this one. The idea of a kid being in a bathtub, even if clothed, could easily excite somebody with some weird fetish. Hard pass.

                            Maybe the parents are not believers. There are a number of Christian schools who accept any student as long as the parents are aware and agree to the teachings of the school that involve the Bible (if Christian schools still teach the Bible). And if those particular parents of this child are “snowflakes” they might over-react to a situation that is perhaps more innocent than it appears on the surface.

                            And stretching further, it’s always possible that people place their children in such places for such a “gotcha” moment in order to discredit the institution, such as those homosexuals who purposely seek out Christian venues and then sue them for not serving them.

                            Just thinking out loud here. Not presenting particularly valid reasons.

                              I do know of a kinda similar event, same but different entirely....

                              Many years ago when I was young, a Church up in Deep East Texas got destroyed by a tornado. Our Church, along with the Texas Baptist Men, went up to rebuild it. While there, I was on the roof nailing down plywood, when the Pastor approached me (on the roof) and pointed out to a small white dot in the bushes about a thousand yards from the Church. He said, "that's 'bathtub boy's' bathtub".

                              The story was that the tornado came through the town, and totally destroyed his house, but he had jumped into the bathtub for protection, and the tornado ripped the roof off, and took the bathtub (with the boy in it) and swirled it around the sky way up at least a couple hundred feet, then set him gently down in the spot where that tub still sat that day.

                              People would come from all over to sit in that tub and have their picture taken "where bathtub boy took a ride and landed".

                              Other than that... I got nothing.


                              ETA - YES, I got a picture of ME in that same bathtub, fully dressed, of course.
                              The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.
