Privacy Settings for Students Not Working

Hello, When I set up my classes, I made sure that "enable all words" was NOT selected under the student privacy section. Today while students were working in DuoLingo for a warm-up, several had the word "cerveza" appear. They were logged in correctly and I confirmed the student privacy settings. Isn't "cerveza" one of the words that is supposed to be screened/blocked? How do I prevent this from happening again? I know some parents will get very bent out of shape if they see this.

What is wrong with the word cerveza?


Acdelavega told us "I know some parents will get very bent out of shape if they see this."

That's what's wrong with it for Acdelavega's class. I don't know what those parents think is wrong with it, and I don't really care. I also don't know if Acdelavega can afford to lose his or her job, which is why I'm not accusing Acdelavega himself or herself of being uptight or anything.
