Pueblo Students Assigned Terorist Plot? What were they thinking?




In what has to be the most inane school assignment of the year, a Pueblo ninth-grade teacher assigned 110 students to come up with an idea for a terrorist attack.
School Superintendent Dan Lere stated that students "may have misinterpreted the assignment," but did not clarify what the assignment was or how it could have been misinterpreted.

Still too many unknowns in this story. Wish they would have gave more details. Based on how secretive they are acting, I would have to say the assignment was unwise.
