By Townhall. Students at Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs, Florida, were given a rather shocking assignment: to take a quiz about whether or not Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz “deserves to die.” To make matters even worse? Coral Glades is only a 10 minute drive from Stoneman Douglas so this should hit close to home.
Images of the quiz made its way around social media. Parkland survivor Cameron Kasky said the school board should be ashamed:
This worksheet was given to students in @BrowardSchools. I cannot begin to express how pathetic I find this. Our school
board should add this to the list of 1000+ reasons to be ashamed. pic.twitter.com/tEl3BzTLg0

This is absolutely despicable.
Broward schools is now giving assignments to students on the shooter that murdered my daughter and 16 others.

School Assignment on Parkland Shooter Sparks Major Controversy
By ABC 7. Some parents and students at a Florida high school are outraged over an assignment that asked if the Parkland School Shooter should get the death penalty.
The assignment was titled “Does Nikolas Cruz Deserve to Die?” It was given to students at a school in Coral Glades – just miles away from Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, where Cruz killed 17 students and staff earlier this year.
Stoneman Douglas parents like Cindy Levine are furious.
“These people lost their children for crying out loud, and my son could’ve been one of them, and a lot of our friends were killed, it’s like sticking a knife in their stomach and turning it over and over,” Levine says. . .
Teachers say the assignment came from an outside publisher. That publisher says it was meant to spark conversations about the history and social impact of the death penalty. (Read more from “School Assignment on Parkland Shooter Sparks Major Controversy” HERE)
