Cliff High School students studying World War I history saw a few seconds of pornography during viewing of a video about the 1919 Treaty of Versailles. A History Channel program apparently had been recorded over a porn tape.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

A substitute teacher who was overseeing the class told school officials he was shocked by the porn and that he had received the tape from a friend. The videotape apparently was shown at least twice in the classroom without incident.

Superintendent Dick Pool won't disclose if any action was taken against the teacher.

Several parents spoke at a school board meeting Thursday. Parent Francesca Estevez said Cliff, located in rural southwestern New Mexico, is "very cohesive" and the videotape "was not acceptable by community standards."

Pool apologized to parents.
