Good or Bad? Teacher Asks Student To Draw a DEAD Loved One


A class of primary school children in Scotland were left in tears after they were told to draw a picture of a dead loved one.

The youngsters were set the task in a lesson about grief, and were also shown a video of other youngsters talking about deaths in their family.
Half the class of pupils aged nine and 10 at Camdean Primary School in Rosyth, Fife, were reduced to tears when they were asked to draw a picture of someone close to them who had died.
A number of parents have now written to Fife Council to voice their concerns over the lesson. 

Adrian Marshall, 43, father of 10-year-old Ryan, from Dunfermline, said: ‘My son came home and told me that a load of children had been crying in class after being shown a really sensitive video.

‘They were asked to draw a deceased loved one. When I complained and met with the teachers, I was told it was all part of Curriculum for Excellence.
‘I think it is important for children to learn about grief but the way this was taught was not the right way of doing things.
