PARKERS PRAIRIE, Minn. — A hypothetical zombie apocalypse is to blame for recent controversy at Parkers Prairie High School in west-central Minnesota.

A teacher gave ninth-grade geography students an assignment that Principal Carey Johnson initially said is part of a nationally recognized curriculum called Zombie-Based Learning. One of the questions asked students to choose three people to sacrifice during a zombie apocalypse and explain why they were chosen.

The assignment from teacher angered some parents of ninth-graders, such as Michelle Diedrich.

A special kind of sickness. Who would want to make a child think about choosing 3 victims to sacrifice and explain why?

The simple retort to stir up the teachers and principals colon is for little Johnny to say “ I’d sacrifice my teacher and principal because according to Henry Kissinger, they’re nothing but “useless eaters” and, clearly, the world could do with a slimmer carbon foot print and the loss of these two would be no loss at all.....

Sit back and watch them try and punish or “feel threatened” by their own directive.  Instant brain salad overdrive.
