Parents: Zombie assignment promotes violence and bullying

ALEXANDRIA, Minnesota (KTRK) -- A high school in Minnesota is getting national attention for a class assignment given earlier this month.

Parents say that a zombie-themed assignment promoted violence and bullying.

Ninth grade students at Parkers Prairie High School were asked to name three people they would sacrifice in a zombie apocalypse and why they chose them to die.

"I was appalled. I was in shock," parent Michelle Diedrich told KSTP. "Of all the school shootings, of all the bullying, now we're telling children to pick three kids."

The assignment was eventually pulled after many parents complained.

The school district would not comment if the teacher who assigned the homework was disciplined.
