The movie Selma isn’t appropriate for high school students because it contains bad language, says an Alabama superintendent. Hugh Taylor refused to bus history club members and other students to the PG-13 movie.
A web site reports two “F-words” and 26 derogatory terms for African-Americans, Taylor said.
“We’re trying to be good stewards of taxpayers money, and sending them off to something that has immoral, unethical language, that may provoke other things, I don’t feel like that’s appropriate,” he said.
“I understand the movie has a lot of historical value,” Taylor said. “I’m not going to send our DeKalb county kids to a movie that has the F-word in it.”
