Her Daughter Was Given Gross Bugs to Eat for Climate Change Project (VIDEO)
A Utah mom is speaking out after her daughters middle school her daughter and the other students were given insects to eat as part of an English assignment on climate change last week.
The March 7 assignment by a Spring Cannon Middle School teacher instructed the students to write an essay on how eating bugs would save the planet from cows which were killing the world. Students were not allowed to write a dissenting opinion.
The school said that children loved the ewww factor and many gave the bugs a try Amanda Wright told Fox News Digital she believed the children were being indoctrinated into a dark climate change religion.
She then set up a meeting with the school principal, Alison Hansen, and six other staff members. Her daughters teacher, Kim Cutler was also in the meeting.
All the evidence has suggested, that we probably should be eating bugs its good for the environment, etc. But I didnt know that that was an offensive topic to indicate, teacher Kim Cutler said, according to an audio recording.
A separate video recording was taken by Wrights daughter in the classroom.
How come we cant state our opinion and write that we shouldnt be eating bugs? she asked Cutler.
Because we dont have any evidence to support it, Cutler said.
Its kind of weird that I gave you a topic where there is only one right answer. We dont want to eat bugs and its gross. But should we be eating bugs? Yeah, because were killing the world by raising cows and animals. So we need to, not get rid of cows, but like, try to balance our diet so that not so much of our land is being used to raise cows, cause its killing the Ozone layer.
What if you wanted to the student interrupted.
Wright recorded the meeting while her daughter, Saige, made a separate video as well.

She wasnt given an option to give an argument, Wright said about the argumentative essay in the meeting.
Well, the assignment was about finding facts to support, Hansen said.. Kids were given extra credit if they did so.
