Parents of a class of Virginia middle schoolers want answers after a teacher mistakenly gave students a worksheet that featured questions about extramarital affairs and other inappropriate content.

Local station WTVR reports the teacher at Carter G. Woodson Middle School assigned a "Family Quiz" worksheet in a Family and Consumer Sciences class with questions like, "What do you call it when a married person has a relationship with someone else?" and "What do you call a married man's girlfriend?"

Hopewell Schools Superintendent Dr. Melody Hackney said in a statement, "We have determined that a teacher downloaded this worksheet from the Internet. This content was not a part of the current and approved curriculum for this course nor was it in any way an appropriate learning tool for middle school aged children."

 

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = 'https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1version=v2.11'; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

What in the world? OK parents and teachers — Tell me what you think about this worksheet apparently assigned to students at one local middle school class.
