WHY SWEDEN IS NOT LIKE HERE

A Swedish high school principal said he sees "nothing wrong" with a video featuring nude students at a farm.

Peter Gustavsson Natural Resource Use Program high school in Stromma, defended the video of nude students riding tractors and performing other farm duties on school grounds, The Local reported Tuesday.

The video, which ensures no genitals or female nipples actually ever appear on screen, was created by the students as a promotion for their annual cabaret night.
