In El Paso, Texas, one Chapin High teacher uses a pretty hard-to-grasp system for grading papers. If you did well, you get a high grade. OK, so far so good. But, if you did badly, you get a big dick scrawled on your paper. Huh. At least that's what an unnamed student reported to his parents and school administration. His mother, Sandra Green, is herself a teacher and was skeptical of her son's initial reprt, "I'm an educator myself so I said, there's no way the teacher really did this." But then it turned out that Language Arts teacher Kim Juzdowski absolutely did!

It could be a duck?

In fact, Ms. Juzdowski admitted it immediately when questioned, even writing a letter of apology (or non-apology, really) to the Greens, saying, "I'm sorry (blank) took offense and I totally understand if you would like to meet with an administrator and have him moved." According to Juzdowski, there was absolutely nothing sexual about the enormous phallus she drew for her teenage student. It was about embarrassing him. He studied like dick, so he got a dick. Juzdowski's skills as an artist appear limited, so presumably her students are never depicted as anything more complicated than genitals.

Sandra Green says the school is refusing to fire Juzdowski. Ironically, they say they would've if she had denied drawing The Penis, but since she apologized, y'know, whatever. She can change! Sandra is unsatisfied with this and is demanding that her son be moved and that the school foot the bill for his regular transportation to another school. She thinks the issue is being taken less seriously because of the gender of all the protagonists:

If it was a man teacher doing it to a female student, they would have taken this totally serious. But because it's the other way around I think they're letting the light side go on it. And I just want him out of the environment.

The process for moving her son could take up to a month. Meanwhile, grading has probably gone back to a letter system in Juzdowski's classroom. She's still handing out huge D's, though.
