9th grade students in Colorado, U.S. were asked to plot an act of terrorism in history class. Parents are outraged, with one calling the assignment “ludicrous."

More than 110 students in Pueblo Country High School received a project to in two minutes come up with a plot for a terrorist attack, reported

The class was supposed to teach the student about terrorism. The teacher explained that the project was to illustrate a terror attack plotted by a foreign government against the United States.

Having learned about her daughter's school assignment, Gini Fischer was outraged:

"To ask them to use their creative energies to come up with a plot for an act of terrorism is very ludicrous," Fischer was quoted.

Students could have misinterpreted the assignment, said local educational authorities.

Usually, if student illustrates a possible act of terrorism, they are expelled from the school.

All the assignments have been collected from the students and destroyed.
