Parents Furious After 8th Graders Forced To Take Wildly Inappropriate, Racist, Violent Math Quiz

An Alabama middle school teacher has been suspended for forcing her students to take a wildly racist 10-question quiz.

The assessment referred to drive-by shootings, drugs, prostitutes, and pimps — to eighth-graders at Burns Middle School in Mobile, according to WPMI in Mobile.

Fortunately, one of her students had the presence of mind to report the incident to his mother, the station reported.

This is the quiz Joanne Bolser distributed to her eighth-graders:

The LA Math Proficiency Test has been circulating - and getting teachers into trouble - since the early 1990s

They make a list of basic math questions known as the “LA Math Proficiency Test.”

One of which goes as follows.

“Tyrone knocked up four girls in a gang. There are 20 girls in the gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?”

Another one: “Desmond gets $200 for a BMW, $150 for a Corvette, $100 for a 4×4. If he steals one BMW, 2 Corvettes, and 3 4x4s, how many more Corvettes does he need to get to $900?”

Which doesn’t even make sense — the answer would be 2/3 of a Corvette.
