Would you consider this an appropriate question to ask a high school, “ever taken off most of your clothes while parking?” A high school teacher in Utah apparently felt it was okay to ask the class these very personal questions. The students were instructed to fill out a 30 question survey that had a lot to do with sex and drugs.
Some of the other questions on the survey include:
- Ever gone out with a member of the opposite sex?
- Ever been kissed while in a reclining position?
- Ever taken off most of your clothes while parking?
- Do you smoke pot?
- Do you drink alcohol or beer now and then?
- Have you ever tried Angel Dust (Hard drugs: i.e.: Ecstacy)?
- Have you ever had sex without using a contraceptive?
- Have you (your girl) ever had an abortion?
- Even though you are straight, would you go kinky to see what it’s like?
The class wasn’t even a ‘Sex Education’ course. It was ‘Adult Roles and Financial Literacy’ at Roy High School, in Roy, Utah.
Students were asked to fill out the survey and put their names on the top of the form. Several students reported feeling very uncomfortable with the request. The questions were assigned points, and then those points were added up, and students were given a ‘title’ based on their score.
Students with a low score are listed as “A nerd,” or “Pure as Ivory soap and maybe a fruitcake.” Students with a higher score match up on the scale as “Headed for serious trouble,” “Already there,” and “Hopeless and condemned.”
The Weber School District was forced to investigate the teacher after several complaints came in. The teacher is now on paid administrative leave while the investigation continues.
Lane Findlay, Weber School District Community Relations, and Safety Specialist said: “it’s against the law to ask students questions about their sexual orientation, behavior, and activity.”
“We apologize,” Findlay said. “It’s inappropriate. It’s outside what the normal curriculum would be, so we feel bad that students were exposed to that.”
