Teacher shows school kids porn by mistake

The accidental porn screening happened in Vicenza, north-east Italy, when a teacher went to play what she thought was a compilation of tunes from the 1980s and 1990s.

But rather than viewing the singing prowess of British boy bands Duran Duran or Take That, the children were shown porn featuring six men and one woman.

The USB stick for the lesson had been prepared by one of the children’s mothers, Vicenza Today reported.

The students subsequently went home and recounted the day’s music lesson in great detail, the news website said.

After complaints were raised by their parents, it is now likely that the school management will ask teachers to check multimedia material before it is shown to children.
