Is the F-word ever OK in the classroom?

In a fit of frustration one day, Travis Bouldin, a history teacher at Ron Brown, tells his students exactly the same thing:

“In the real world, people are not going to want to work with you if you’re cursing at them nonstop. You cannot continue to speak to each other like you’re nothing!”

But instead of suspending the students for their cursing, or kicking them out of class, here is what he does: He challenges the students to turn to a classmate, and pay him a compliment. He is turning cursing into compliments.
