A Mobile, Alabama parent is fuming over a 10-question math quiz her eighth grader took last Friday.
Erica Hall told reporters from Mobile’s Fox 10 that her son — who attends Burns Middle School — sent her a picture of the quiz as he was taking it. The picture revealed disturbing and graphic math word problems including:
“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?”
“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?”
“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.
Since the incident, Hall and her husband went to the school to get answers.
