Like our Grandfather used to say: ‘Never underestimate the stupidity of people.’
An investigation has been launched by Gwinett County Schools in Georgia, (story becomes less surprising following that information), after some mouth breather with a teaching qualification thought it would be a good idea to pose the above featured homework maths problems for students. Of course being 2012, the year of pushing the envelope, the teacher responsible used this opportunity to ‘reinforce social studies lessons through maths‘ which is why slavery and racial beatings naturally became the main themes.
What’s interesting is that at no point so far in the investigation has there been any talk of the teacher either being fired or suspended.
