Some parents are pretty upset over their kids getting what they are calling a racist test asking questions about ounces and drive-by shootings.

This must be that “new math” they’ve been talking about.

A teacher in Mobile, Ala. is in hot water after administering a test where students were quizzed on prostitutes, drug prices and how much they can get for a stolen car.

Mobile’s Fox 10 reports:

A Burns Middle school teacher has been placed on administrative leave over a controversial test given to some 8th grade students.

Some parents say the test includes questionable language and subject matter that just doesn’t belong in the classroom. The parents say they can’t believe it was actually given to students.

It’s a 10-question math quiz that highlights prostitution, drugs, and drive-by shootings.

“My son, he took a picture of it in class and he texted it to me. I couldn’t believe it,” Erica Hall said.

Hall said her son sent her a text photo of the quiz his eighth-grade language arts teacher passed out Friday.

Hall said even the kids thought it was some kind of joke.

“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,” Hall said.

Fox 10 is also reporting that the test is not new and that it has been circulating since the 1990s. The teacher has not been called out publicly but the school did put her on administrative leave while they investigate the matter.
