ANSON -- This might be a problem you hear of coming from a larger city, but in Anson an age inappropriate homework assignment went home with 5th graders. It has left some parents unhappy. 

The English assignment, dealing with prefixes and suffixes, had a story that was supposed to be filled in with the correct words to have the story make sense.

That's where the problem comes in.

The story dealt with infidelity and cheating, once put together, and it left many parents uncomfortable.

The teacher who has been there for several years has been reprimanded, the principal wouldn't say how.
