• Class aimed at getting rid of southern accents scrapped

    Updated:

    TENNESSEE - School administrators have canceled a class aimed at teaching people how to get rid of their southern accent.

    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee offered the course.

    Instructors said the class would help people feel confident in meetings if someone needed to speak with a neutral accent. But some employees complained, saying they were offended.

    Managers have since canceled the class altogether.
