"Hector knocked up 6 girls in his gang. There are 27 girls in the gang. What percentage of the girls in the gang has Hector knocked up?" That's an easy enough question to answer but parents are upset over this question—and many more—that a teacher gave her students because gangs, pregnancy, and drugs, aren't exactly appropriate material for an eighth grade math class.
At first, the kids at the Alabama middle school, which the Washington Post stated is about 50 percent black and 40 percent white, thought their teacher was pulling a bad joke. Parent Erica Hall, who told Fox 10 she "couldn't believe" this assignment, clarified that this was a real quiz. "They took it as a joke, and she told them that it wasn't it a joke, and they had to complete it, and turn it in." So how'd the kids do? Nobody knows.
