Taking Photos in the Bathtub for a Homework Assignment

Jacksonville Florida Victory Christian Academy removed an 8-year-old student when parents complained about a homework assignment given to their child.


The Dunhams were shocked to see a part of their daughters homework assignment which instructed the students to "send picture of you doing reading homework in bathtub."

The Dunhams were surprised so Misty Dunham wrote the teacher for clarification on the assignment and was told, by the teacher, "You should be in pajamas, be in your uniform, have fun with it." But that didn't sit right with Misty.


According to Action News Jax, "Misty Dunham reached out to the school administration, and later to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, to document the incident."


In a police report obtained by Action News Jax, it states parents were told by administrators, “we have been sending this homework assignment for years, and you’re the only one complaining about it.” Police advised the parents not to take the photo.


Later, the Dunham family said they got a call from the school.


“(He said) ‘I think you guys should do a parental withdrawal for the child.’ I said, ‘I can’t. I can’t do that. We refuse to withdraw her,’” Misty Dunham said. “He said, ‘OK thank you for saying that,’ and continued on saying that, ‘Well, we’re going to proceed with an administration withdraw.’”
