School fundraiser sold porn DVDs

March 8, 2010 at 5:06 PM

MORENO VALLEY, Calif., March 8 (UPI) -- Officials with a California school district said they have addressed parent complaints about racist and pornographic DVDs and books sold by a booster club.

Moreno Valley Unified School District Superintendent Rowena Lagrosa said all items have been removed from the empty Box Springs Elementary School classroom where the booster club held a sale that some parents said featured pirated DVDs and books with pornographic and racist content, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported Monday.

"We've investigated and taken appropriate action," Lagrosa said. She said the school's principal, teachers and booster club members were unaware of the inappropriate items until a concerned parent brought them to the attention of officials.

Parent Christina O'Donnell said she bought several of the offending items at the Feb. 26 sale. She said they included pornographic and R-rated films as well as a book titled "Aryan Nation Brotherhood" with a swastika on the cover.

Lagrosa said the items came from donations. She said future donations would be subject to the approval of the school board.
