SPOKANE, Wash. —

A high school teacher in Spokane has been placed on leave for allegedly handing out the lyrics to a hip-hop song that criticizes the education system on the first day of school.

Spokane school spokeswoman Terren Roloff said Wednesday the district is investigating the allegation. She says it was too early to say if the teacher at Shadle Park High School will be punished.

The teacher has not been identified.

Roloff did not have details about the song by the hip-hop group Blue Scholars, but the members of the Seattle duo say the song was called "Commencement Day" and contains several swear words.

The group says a student contacted them about the incident.
