Teacher assigns pre teens suicide writing assignment

A  teacher in France gave a strange writing assignment to his class of pre teens. 

"You've just turned 18. You've decided to end your life. Your decision is definitive.
In a final surge you decide to put in words the reason behind your decision. In the style of a self-portrait, you describe the disgust you have for yourself. Your text will retrace certain events in your life at the origin of these feelings."
This is a class of 13 and 14 year olds!! The teacher is suspended after parents complained. Teenage suicide is a serious matter and  to mix a writing assignment with the emotions of pre teens is just ridiculous.  It is almost like he is putting the option on the table. Another assault on life.
