    Whos The Daddy? Homework Assignment Prompts Parent Complaint

    ‘Who’s The Daddy?’ Homework Assignment Prompts Parent Complaint « CBS Detroit
    ROMEO, Mich. (WWJ) The principal of Romeo High School has called an outraged father to apologize about a controversial homework assignment.

    (it won't let me post the pic of the paper but it's funny and at the link.)

    The 9th grade biology worksheet sent home with students this week featured questions about a mother trying to determine the identity of her babys father.

    Possible answers included: the cable guy, the mailman, the cab driver, the bartender and the guy at the club.

    The goal is that the students are understanding blood types and DNA and possibilities based on the makeup of the two parents, explained Romeo Schools Superintendent Nancy Campbell.

    But, again, this painted a picture, I think, that was not appropriate, she added. My first thought when I saw it was that it certainly been worded better.

    Unamused, a parent sent the incomplete assignment back, with the note: We teach our children not to sleep around.

    Campbell said the teacher, who got the worksheet from a teaching website, has apologized.

    Teachers use all kinds of different resources that are available to them, Campbell said. [This incident] brings in awareness for all of our staff to, you know, be more thoughtful and reflective about the items they use when they put them on a homework assignment.

    According to Campbell, only one parent complained.

    Romeo is located in Macomb County, about 30 miles north of Detroit.

    I don't necessarily find it inappropriate. I think something like this would get the kid's attention... I mean, hell they see this shit all the time.

    PS, I think it's the guy at the club!

    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    It is inappropriate, but that doesn't detract from the sheer awesomeness of the assignment. Mama sure got around it looks like.

    I thnk it was great. This is one way for a clear understanding of DNA for those kids. That parent fails to understand she can use this as a prime example of why dear Audri shouldn't sleep around!
    Do parents actually think a 9th grader would be shocked. They hear far worse on tv & innternet.

    this.

    also, these kids are in 9th grade, there are probably girls in that class facing that very same dilemma. i think this is hilarious.
