A longtime Alabama middle school teach was placed on administrative leave after she gave her eighth-grade students a math quiz last month that used scenarios involving drugs, guns, and prostitutes.
Language Arts teacher JoAnne Bolser was scheduled to retire the day after the test was given, according to NBC affiliate WPMI-TV.
According to parents and kids who complained about the test, some of the questions included:
- Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?
- Pedro got 6 years for murder. He also got $10,000 for the hit. If his common-law wife spends $100 of his hit money per month, how much money will be left when he gets out?"
- Leroy has 2 ounces of cocaine. If he sells an 8 ball to Antonio for $320 and 2 grams to Juan for $85 per gram, what is the street value of the rest of his hold?
The questions were taken from a fictitious "City of Los Angeles High School Math Proficiency Exam" quiz that appeared online a few years ago.
It's unclear if Bolser appealed the decision to be placed on administrative leave.
