A school in Michigan is looking to tighten up its technology after a pornography video was played to a seventh-grade history class.

FOX 2 reports that on March 13 a substitute teacher at O.L. Smith was attempting to play a Lewis and Clark video for the U.S. history class when the porn was displayed.

The explicit footage played for at least 30 seconds before the teacher was able to turn the computer off.

David Mustonen, Dearborn schools communication director, said:

“The substitute teacher that was in the classroom was unaware that this video was there.”

However, FOX 2 says that the district can not confirm how the visual got on the computer, so out of precaution the substitute will not be asked to return.

Mustonen has blamed the incident on an “isolated” technology glitch.

He said:

“In this particular instance it appears there was some sort type of loophole – one time too many – but very isolated. Are we looking into this particular instance are we making sure this doesn’t happen again, yes, absolutely. Do we need to scrap everything and start over? No, nowhere near that.”

The school sent a letter home to the 29 students’ parents following the “unfortunate and rare occurrence.”

As FOX 2 reports, parent Christina Lentz said:

“They don’t seem to care at all. The fact that this would be in a school is a problem.”

According to FOX 2, the district states that support was offered to students who were exposed to the pornographic images. Further, the Dearborn police sergeant over school resource officers said that the investigation is closed and there was no evidence of “criminal intent.”
