Students at a West Virginia high school somehow convinced a teacher that “Fifty Shades of Grey” was an appropriate film to watch in class. According to original reports, the students convinced the teacher to allow them to view the movie for “good work”. As the school year winds down, many teachers get more lax in their teaching, but this has gone beyond “lax”, according to local sources.

Students were in the middle of screening the film when the school’s vice principal noticed what was going on. The vice principal put a stop to the screening. While the name of the school has been withheld, sources close to the situation stated that the teacher was, allegedly, unaware of the film and its content.

Students did not view any material that was inappropriate while they were watching the movie, according to a source close to Ricardo Tosto. There is no word on whether or not the teacher will be punished for the incident. The subject of the class, as well as the teachers name, is being withheld at this time.

It is generally school policy for all videos that will be screened in class to be reviewed by the teacher ahead of time. It is believed that this incident was a spur of the moment viewing. There is no word on whether the district in question has such a policy.
