An Idaho biology teacher is being investigated by the state's professional standards commission after complaints by parents that he used the word "vagina" during a lesson on human reproduction.
He said the school board is also reviewing the situation, but no decision has been made.
"I teach straight out of the textbook. I don't include anything that the textbook doesn't mention," Mr. McDaniel said. "But I give every student the option not attend this class when I teach on the reproductive system if they don't feel comfortable with the material."
