School worksheet quizzed students on 'boy toy,' affairs

#

Middle school students in a Virginia home economics class were mistakenly given a worksheet that quizzed them on what an extramarital affair is as well as "boy toy" and "trophy wife."

WTVR reported Monday that the teacher at the school outside Richmond, Virginia, had downloaded the worksheet from the internet. The superintendent for Hopewell schools said it was never part of the curriculum.

Parents at Carter G. Woodson Middle School were angry. The "Family Quiz" worksheet was assigned Friday in a Family & Consumer Sciences class.

It began with questions such as "What do you call the father of your father?"

But questions also asked: "What do you call it when a married person has a relationship with someone else?" and "What do you call the much younger boyfriend of an older woman?"

    I don't think that this quiz was above the knowledge of middle school students---maybe above the parents.

    Parents probably afraid to admit their kids know these things--Oh where, where would they have learned this stuff.

    Soooo what's the problem again?

    Answer 1: your grandfather
    Answer 2: an affair
    Answer 3: by his first name - preferably with Mr. in front of it to show respect.

    "What do you call the father of your father?" Um... Grandpa? Am I missing something here?

    What's the problem? Isn't the class supposed to prepare them for real life?

    "What do you call the much younger boyfriend of an older woman?"

    By his name, if your mama raised you with any kind of class.
