Retraction: After publishing this story, the Daily Caller discovered key errors that called into question the article’s central thesis. The subject of the article was fabricated by hoaxters and promoted online as real. The Caller contacted the school district in question, who denied the “handouts” were part of the curriculum, but refused to deny whether they were in fact taught to students. Senior leadership at the Caller regrets the error, and is investigating the editorial processes that led to these mistakes.

The retracted article is archived here.
