"Villa Park seniors in English teacher Stephen Arcudi's fourth-period class at Villa Park High School had just taken a test on Pride and Prejudice when he invited everyone up to his desk. Saying that atrocities are occurring on both sides of the Iraqi war, Arcudi played the entire video footage on his laptop of the beheading of American citizen Nicholas Berg... Responding to complaints the next day from a student and a parent, Villa Park High officials put Arcudi on administrative leave... Friday, NBC-TV reported that teachers at two San Diego-area schools - El Capitan High and Grossmont High - were removed from their classrooms for showing the Berg video or still images of it to students."
