School for scandal

America may be the worldwide leader in ridiculously stupid ideas in the field of education, but our cousins across The Pond are rapidly catching up:

A British school was blasted Friday after kids as young as 11 were told to shout obscenities during a lesson in swearing.

Expletives like the f-word and c-word were written on a blackboard before a teacher explained their meaning to 30 seventh graders.

S.t Laurence School in Bradford on Avon, Wilts, claims it was part of a sex and relationship education program to "dispel" the myths of swear words.

What does that even mean? What are these "myths"? And how does shouting "FUCK" at a chalkboard "dispel" anything?
