Here is your copy of the questionnaire:
I can see the outrage from the parents.
I do not understand the point of the teacher doing this. I was a total wallflower in HS. HOWEVER, given a test like this I would have answered yes to every single shocking thing. Just because. Kids are like that.
“Millers daughter, Olivia, 16, told her mother responding to the quiz was required to get a grade..”
I remember two of my kids (twins) got just such a drugs/sex quiz in middle school. They treated it as a big joke. The best laugh, however, was from a friend of theirs.
When asked about sexual experience, he wrote in, “Do animals count?”
If you read the questions it was a nothing burger. The people are upset because it isn’t friendly enough to LGBT folks and is judgmental
This was a question on the survey that makes it clear it originated in 1981. I can understand why parents were a little upset. What a waste of class time.
I am more interested in the whacko teacher than the “judgmental” test.
She has been giving that test out for SEVEN years, with no complaints, she said.
Worse, is that kids at that level of Juniors in High School are willing to have their privacy invaded.
A study in what these students were NOT taught.
Bottom line is one GODless teacher bringing along GODless students, in GODlessness. Period.
Did the stooges running public government schools ever figured out which restrooms the kiddies should be using?
Example #5,659 why public schools ARE child abuse.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
Dear Abby? What’s that?
What is the purpose of this questionnaire? It is NONE of the teachers’ business.
If I were a student, I would answer everything as if I were as pure as the driven snow.
My kids know that I detest government intrusion and information-gathering. The government is there to provide national security (and, I guess, collect taxes, LOL), and the schools are there to teach the “three Rs.” That is all.
Teachers trying to get a feel of who is willing do what with them?
Reminds me of an old song. Smiling faces, sometimes, they don't tell the truth.
Public government schools are bursting with child predators. It draws them like moths to flame. So these invasive, probing questions are no surprise...
“Ever said I love you to more than one person in the same week?”
Yes, I confess I told my mom and dad that in the same week.
“Ever taken off most of your clothes while parking?”
Sure, I changed for work after school in the car many times.
Tried this quiz based on my recollection and scored a “Headed for serious trouble” despite the fact that most in high school considered me a goody-goody.
