THE BRONX - ? Students at the Bronx School for Law and Finance are standing up for their teacher who faces accusations of distributing sexually explicit material to the class.

The English teacher, Mr. Greg Van Voorhis, allegedly handed out sexually explicit literature to his class. The article, called ?Guts,? was given to the students to prepare for a Regents exam and allegedly described stories about masturbation.

Students say Van Voorhis had the best intentions and they are standing by him.

The Department of Education says Van Voorhis has been removed from the school and reassigned pending an investigation.
