A relative from Tallahassee, Florida, complained that one of the world’s most beloved artifacts was pornography. After this complaint, the principal of the school was fired.
Hope Carrasquilla, who just started working at the Tallahassee Classics less than a year ago, announced her resignation Monday at an emergency board meeting, the Tallahassee Democrat reports.

Ms Carrasquilla told The Independent that the head of the school board, Barney Bishop, had told her she had to resign or she would be fired. Although he did not seem to specify the reason for the request, the headmistress believes it was a lesson in Renaissance art.
According to the principal, the school is required by law to teach Renaissance art classes to sixth-grade students. She explains that three parents complained that their children felt uncomfortable during the lesson, which included a section on Michelangelo’s David.
Two of the three parents who complained about the Renaissance art lesson said they wished they had been told before it was taught. The third parent complained that the lesson was pornographic, despite teaching it to 11- and 12-year-olds.
Many famous works of Renaissance art, notably Michelangelo’s David, feature detailed depictions of the human body, including nudity.
