homework assignment

In yet another sign of the times, a Georgia middle school teacher was suspended for assigning homework to her sixth grade students that featured explicit lyrics by rapper Kodak Black.

Crishana Wright, pictured left, was understandably alarmed when she reviewed her daughter Kalani’s homework and read what appeared to be explicit, violent and sexually suggestive rap lyrics.

Kalani, right, told her mother that her teacher assigned homework featuring lyrics from rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s collabo with Kodak Black, titled “Drowning”. Kalani said she was instructed to exchange the negative lyrics into something positive.

The teacher provided an example of changing negative lyrics to positive. For example, instead of the lyrics “I’m drowning,” she used “I’m rising” “because we always rise above.”

“I’m reading all these words and I immediately asked her why she had this and she said it was an assignment,” Wright told WSB-TV.

Wright said she understood the teacher’s intention, but it wasn’t well-thought-out.

“You’re dealing with children’s minds; you have to be very cautious,” she said.

DeKalb County School District Superintendent R. Stephen Green said in a statement that the teacher used poor judgment and she was removed from the classroom.

Kalani told WSB that she knew her mom “would be mad” when she brought her worksheet assignment home.

Sadly, none of the other parents complained about the homework assignment.




  • Wreckognize Game

    Sounds about right for one parent to care enough to complain.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Uhhh. Sixth grade is too young I suppose. I would like to know specifically what the assignment was. Idk, The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Perhaps, the teacher should have gotten written permission from the parents first.

    That being said, I bet the little girl was already familiar with the song and the lyrics.

    P.S. I hate all three of those pictures…

  • imright

    when keeping it real goes wrong ?????

  • klwbaby

    I think the assignment was to change every word u perceive as being negative to change to a positive word. If he said hate, I guess u change it to love. I don’t see the point of this assignment but whatever??

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Ridiculous. Fire her ass–she clearly has limited judgment and who knows what she’ll try to teach the kids next–maybe, how to properly slide down a stripper pole?

    In other topics, Kodak Black is the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

    He looks like something you’d find between the toes of a homeless man.

    If the purpose of an education is to prepare children to be productive members of society… why not spend more time teaching students how to write a resume, present themselves during an interview, and other tasks that will greatly impact their lives?

    When I was in high school (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth), I took a business class that explained how to set a budget, manage and build credit, balance a checkbook, explore entrepreneurial opportunities, and write a business plan.

    Now, teachers are instructing children to read filth created by smut-peddlers? What is going on in the public school system?

  • Urbn distinction

    Lol they need to check her credentials and see if she actually attended college. No college educated person would have done this.

  • Cali

    It’s a strategy to harm out children with the participation of stupid negroids.

    A lot of people disagree with me, but I feel the same way about negative forms of rap music. I think it’s poisonous and a form of mind control. It is no coincidence that positive rap was snuffed out.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Ms. Wright is to be commended for looking at her daughter’s homework assignment. Most parents don’t bother.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I agree. Her involvement in her daughter’s education is a sign that she wants the best for her child.

  • Cali

    I agree, what culture degrades their own fudging people in music form? I can’t imagine Jews graphically singing/rapping about murdering the other and having sex with multiple women, etc. and then go on to be celebrated as some sort of ROLE MODEL.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I stay in my children’s bookbag. They can’t even open the fridge to get a drink before showing me their assignments. All homework is completed by 4pm (I am fortunate to work at home). And they are in first and second grade! Their teachers know me by first and last name. I do not play when it comes to education and their teachers despise me for holding them accountable. Education is taught in school but learned at home.

    Although I absolutely hate the whitewashing in the education system, if necessary I would choose that to learning about disgusting hip hop culture. Ask my 8 year old and he will straight up you that he doesn’t like rap music (sometimes that saddens me but I hate it too).

    I am not proud to say that I purposely chose a school zone where my kids would receive the same education the white students do. It is what it is until I can find a qualified black charter school (please let me know if there is one in GA). I teach them black history at home and through library books.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Ryan, I don’t formulate my opinions based on other people’s approval or a need for attention. ?

  • klwbaby

    I’m surprised that Kodak Black used actual words in his songs. When I tried to listen to one of his songs, it sounded like mumbo jumbo.

  • hottlanta

    Ron Clark Academy teach our kids by rapping and he is considered a education genius.

  • Real Greasy

    Crazy when moms ride to schools listening to the same toons albeit the profanity on local radio .. yet this teacher was brave enough to try and reach her students with something they hear on the R & B commuting to school… it’s just 2017 homework for a youngin going to public school. Now if I’m paying 20 bands a year for private school……. uproar…uproar!!!!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Songs about black love, pride, and empowerment can’t get radio play. Who controls the airwaves and why are they against black empowerment?

    There’s a song by Prince that says, and I’m paraphrasing, “when them devil come… the devil come dressed as light… you may fool the untrained mind… but nobody I know, gon’ bite.”

    Some people will feed you poison and tell you it’s good for you.

  • dontgetblocked

    He’s not. Why do we have to associate learning with rapping? Black people can learn just like every other race.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Right. Black people are not “special”.

  • dontgetblocked

    This is why my kid would not go to a hood school. Black people need to sit down and read a book like every other race. That’s why we’re considered stupid. You have to add music. Do a high five and jigaboo dance at the classroom door or do some other form of dumb people learning method to make somewhat pay attention. Education is not a priority for most blacks, it’s a priority to Asians, Indians, and of course whites. All ethnic groups that excel in America.

  • TheOwley

    The goals of sexuality education in the schools have become quite lofty. Since sex education is not done at home and children grow up to become ignorant or naive adults, the schools have taken over. I’m all for sexuality education (in short stages grades K to 12, as in teaching simple things to little kids like no one touches you in that area, etc. all the way to STD’s and pregnancies to high schoolers). In the end I’m OK with promoting sexual health, critical-thinking skills, and general responsibility.

    The problem is all this is the execution. I don’t want my kids to be taught about fisting, and other unbelievable smut based things. Because there is no national program in how all this is done, this program falls at the mercy of individual schools and teachers. You see the crazy come out. Like who told this woman here that Kodak was the way to go for her lesson plan. It’s a problem.

  • monique

    Atlanta International School, they will have half the day in another language. If I had kids, they would definitely be in that environment. I am in Brazil now, learning Portuguese but everyone here desires to speak English.

  • dontgetblocked

    So you’re saying that this is the cheap, lower income teaching method which it is. How are these kids going to compete with white or Asian kids who take a negative piece of English literature and make it positive. Wouldn’t this be a better way to teach. The child would learn literature and not a useless foul rap song. Plus, doesn’t Kodak Black hate black butts aka dark-skinnned girls?

  • TheOwley

    When I was in HS, we had to select a song and break it down as in describing what the writer intend to convey. You don’t change the words or theme. That in itself is sacrilegious. While I don’t approve of Kodak, who the hell is anyone to correct the emotions or feelings like like one is drowning. How about teaching the kids why one would feel that way and how can one cope when challenges arise in our lives. When your schools are loaded with stupid teachers that can’t teach this is the outcome.

  • dontgetblocked

    Location is always important when choosing a home. I know people who have stayed in apartments in a good school zone until they could afford to buy a home.

    I could go on and on, forever, about sex education. I was lucky. My mother is a psychiatrist. I literally grew up surrounded by medical books and a mother who encouraged me to read and ask questions. She is the reason I lived through the HIV/AIDS epidemic, unscathed.

    As far as lesson plans go, I thought they had to be approved by the school board. I didn’t know teachers were allowed so much creative leeway.

  • Kimberly Malakoff

    What? Why make such a broad generalization? Is your view shaped by this single article?

    Last I checked, in my “hood”, most young black men I know are attending top universities with a solid plan in place for their futures.

    I know some white boys that quit high school to become wanna be rappers.

    Not all the ethnic groups you pointed out magically excel in America. I know a lot of them struggle just like everyone else.

    Jump out of the “black community” bandwagon. It’s not healthy.

  • C Mack

    She wasn’t teaching the content of the song. For you to attack these “cheap, lower income teaching methods”, you seem to have missed lesson on comprehension yourself

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Nothing to see here.

  • kekeb

    SMH. U have to reach kids and get them engaged. I didn’t see any curse words. The kids probably know ALL THE WORDS TO THE SONG ANYWAY. So, 6th graders can make twerk videos on Snapchat but not do a homework assignment with rap lyrics changed to be more fitting and positive? Okkkk

  • C Mack

    Music is universal. All types of students find music study entertaining, engaging, and enriching. Using song lyrics allows students to apply academic skills to culturally relevant texts.

  • C Mack

    ?because this is happening at EVERY school

    I think the age group was too young, but a more mature audience would have enjoyed this. Not sure why she didn’t use the clean version.

    I agree music is universal. I don’t agree that the music TODAY is engaging, entertaining or enriching. To each their own but I’d rather my children learn functional skills. I can always enroll them in piano/ballet classes in the evenings.

    I really enjoy your comments, Chicagowise!

  • C Mack

    We can agree! I understand everyone’s concern, but I also think that these kids should absolutely know what they are polluting their brains with.

    By transforming those lyrics, those students would have faced the quantitative amount of negative language and imagery found in the work of one of their idols. She may have inspired a child to STOP listening to Kodak!

  • Hmmm~?

    No one complained when Ron Clark had his school of all black youth shucking and jiving like some freed slaves on national TV tho

  • C Mack

    Better educated counterparts who may not internalize these lyrics despite listening to the same songs and learning every word.

    Teaching our kids while incorporating our culture and what students respond to has you all up in arms.

    This activity had the potential to teach these students about the impact others have on our mindset, etc.

    Relatively speaking yes, they need approval. It’s the delivery and nuances that get them in trouble. When I was in grad school, one of my prof. started talking about lesbian sex, sort of related to the coursework but really, a huge reach. She asked if we were aware of dot dot dot items. I looked around and my classmates were looking at each other like deers in the headlights. I was like huh what now? I had to look up some things she said out of curiosity. But this was not part of the curriculum and of course, all adults here with access to look things up. The art of teaching requires great boundaries and you know what’s happening with teachers these days, specially females. You gotta quiz the kids when they come home.

    While understanding her intent, I would’ve never used this track. I’ve taught at a Community College and used diverse ways of teaching many subjects. This thread shouldn’t denigrate the use of music in teaching other subjects. A lot of music is literate, melodic and rhythmic. I use spoken word in some classes. I think it’s best to get student’s to create their own lyrics and beats. It’s always good to use art as expression. There are so many genres of music and I know for a fact that young people listen to more than rap in the hood my students live in.

  • Anji

  • hottlanta

    There are some really stupid people in here. White Supremacy is alive and well because loser Black women/men FAIL to understand that you must separate Ghetto-ness and Ratch-ness from the classroom. Just because a kid has heard a rap song doesn’t mean that this child should have it shoved down his/her throat in the classroom when he/she could be learning the difference between your and you’re and ALL of the other meaningful ish he/she needs to KNOW to navigate the world. WHY make the child’s world so SMALL? They haven’t even started. Stop talking about whites, YOU are the reason for ALLL. These kids don’t have a fuggin chance because not even black folks think they are $hit apparently, sick.

    You’re correct. These classes are always full with students from all ethnic groups. While working on my doctorate I remember when hiphop and rap overwhelmed all other genres as far as sales go. Historic moment in music history and highlighting a truly grass roots phenomenon.

If a black person raise their kids everything black from the cradle to the grave it is seen as a bad thing and folks called it limited.

    “Some people will feed you poison and tell you it’s good for you.” This is exactly why Black losers in this post are FOR the eradication of our youth. They are OK with limiting their world to wrap in the classroom because “they already hear it”. There is no need for whites to do anything to black people, they have been given the rope that they continuously hang their dumb ass selves with over and over while also taking others with them, even the kids are ok to sacrifice.

    Why resort to name-calling? For someone so concerned with our youth, you are not setting much of an example.

    I don’t know which loser black men or women you’re (contraction for you are) referring to in your incendiary comment, but I disagree with you.

    Sometimes you have to meet kids where they are. If this was all this teacher’s students did every day, I would agree. I even agree with those who said 6th graders are simply too young for this type of lesson, but I appreciate this teacher’s effort to create an engaging lesson for students who come in with reading deficits, behavorial issues, etc.

    This could have been a great activity to use as an intro to a more substantial task.

    Because Black culture over the last 30 years is trash culture, its RAP, CRACK, VIOLENCE, MISOGYNY and IRRESPONSIBLE as in it’s the white man’s fault. Unlike Jews, we did not have as smooth of a ride in America as they did with their assets they brought over to live well in America. They own more than you know because they were like MLK era black folks who wouldn’t take $hit. Black people now are fuggin out of it, lost in space, back to sitting in the back of the bus at their own hand and I’m convinced this was all planned and going the way it should because black folks STAY sleep with the bs, like seriously? HOW do black mothers and fathers allow their kids to be taught $hit when this is the time they are the most impressionable? This is the time to pick up a language and move outside of your own world. Jews took over their school districts and DEMANDED equal education and I can guarantee its the history they want taught not some random corny rapper who degrades his own women, if Black parents done this “they” could not get away with half the ish that’s done to our kids like not knowing how to read and graduating HS (Compton High)? How? even in poor areas, if Black folks raised hell THIS would not happen! I do apologize for calling you names, I do get VERY very angry when children are not protected. I don’t care much for adults because they are mostly set, but I see kids as taking over the future, but not if the same BS continues and black people CAN get back to that era of greatness.The kids are the future

    Yes re-educating blacks is similar to teaching a baby to think/speak. It’s even harder bc we collectively need to be reprogrammed from all the crap we have been taught under the system of White Supremacy.

    I’m torn because on one hand u don’t want bad stuff introduced to your children but on the other hand the fact the lyrics were characterised as negative can teach your children discernment between good and bad

    Positive and negative
    Light and darkness

  • SolEK Ennis-Klyczek

    I think it’s a shame that the teacher was suspended. A lot of the kids (and some of the parents) listen to this music. Some of them don’t even give the lyrics any serious analysis. The teacher made the children listen to this popular music and instructed them to make a positive out of a negative. Wow! Teachers can’t even do that now? What’s the use in having intelligence and a degree and being an educator if the powers that be won’t even allow you to do good creatively? Sad day.

  • hottlanta

    Dem white folks ain’t mad at OJ they was made at brother Johnny because he showed the whole world brothers got it going on. That is what that trial was about. It was about white lawyers versus black lawyers. Marcia Clark would have been President for 4 terms had she won that case. Folks needs to look at the bigger picture. If Johnny had lost folks would be saying I don’t wanna deal with a black lawyer because of Johnny. Marcia lost but people still flock to white lawyers.

    The Ron Clark Academy is one of the best schools in Atlanta, in terms of simple academic achievement. The kids at that school LEARN, which is a lot more than I can say for a lot of schools in this city.

    It was definitely poor judgment. It’s bad enough black history isn’t included in American history. Ask a kid about a rapper and they can tell you who shot who, who said what about what. Turn around and ask that same kid about Medgar Evers and the response is, who?
    This teacher doing too damn much. I get she wants to keep them interested and engaged in the curriculum but this was just wrong. They already hear cursing and god knows what outside the classroom. That should be the one place to actually get away from all of that.
    All it takes is one person to stand up for what’s right. It just shows this parent actually pays attention to her child. I guess the others just laughed it off and went back to ignoring their kid as usual. ‘Momma gotta have a life, too’ mentality is rampant.

  • Karla E

    $22k per school year per child grades K-4. That’s over $44k per year for two children. That’s more than half my salary. Who can afford that (besides rich white folks)?

I just hope when the kids get to college they don’t freak out because the college professor isn’t rapping to them nor is the person interviewing them for a job.

    I am still freaking out when people was calling Beyoncé Lemonade a lesson in black history and if it is not told with a woman slanging a wig and gyrating in a onesie no one will pay attention. Yep you are right they talk about dead Einstein but don’t talk about Neil DE Grasse Tyson my living favorite intellect. They need to know that black people have global international wealth for inventions like the red, yellow, black stop lights used by everyone. But when they think of wealth they can only think of Beyoncé and don’t know that other black folks were financially way ahead of her light years before she was even born.

I saw no harm in the assignment in changing negative to positive and for this she was removed but teachers can have sex with and put hands on kids and they stay.

    Yes, The Catcher in the Rye was intended for a mature audience. However, I disagree that other people should have the right to decide was is appropriate for someone else’s child.

    I don’t live my life based on what other people are doing or what they believe is acceptable. I am the gatekeeper of my own morality.

    I’m a homosexual. Most gay men are extremely promiscuous and they often engage in risky sexual activity. That is the norm for gay men. Even in public, they often approach one another like dogs in heat.

    I don’t get down like that. I have been called “stuck up,” “shady,” “a prude,” and laundry list of names… all because I have the audacity to govern my own behavior and protect myself from people who refuse to protect themselves.

    My comments weren’t based on a “supposed conversation.” Speaking of wierd and perverted… Kenneka’s mother posted that interaction online, AFTER her daughter died. Apparently, somewhere in the scrambled eggs of her mind, she thought that was a cute mother-daughter moment.

    Tacky behavior isn’t restricted to any particular race, age or sex. So, your argument that I’m “bashing” Kenneka’s mother because she is black, is ridiculous. I think Kenneka’s mother shares some blame in her daughter’s death. I think she failed as a parent.

She could’ve easily used this assignment as a way to teach black history, or present day black history about all the negative things they’re saying about Colin the football player, or in present day Black history how the media plays a big role in speaking negatively about black people. Any parent that didn’t see how dumb this teacher appeared obviously has a limited education.

    This was probably a black mother who got her in trouble, all the kids in that class probably listen to Kodak Black…stop being extra!

    haha, the funny thing is she is probably a school teacher!

    Didn’t we just celebrate a teacher for changing lyrics to Cardi’s song though?
