SAN DIEGO (AP) - Nine students have been suspended from a San Diego middle school after classmates claimed they were watching porn on cell phones and masturbating in class.

The U-T San Diego says the suspended students were in an all-boys English class at Bell Middle School in Paradise Hills.

The school told the newspaper on May 29 the reason for the suspensions could not be released. Parents of students in the class say they haven’t been told anything.

The paper has obtained and reviewed testimonials written by 22 students in the class.

Several said they raised their hands to report the behavior but the teacher kept reading a book.

The teacher has not replied to a newspaper request for comment but a union representative is rallying support for him.
