Ala. teacher suspended for math test about drugs, prostitution

A middle school teacher in Alabama is reportedly on administrative leave after giving students a questionable math test.

One of the problems reads:

“Rufus is pimping for three girls. If the price is $65 for each trick, how many tricks will each girl have to turn so Rufus can pay for his $800-per-day crack habit?”

Another problem reads:

“Jarone want to cut his 1/2 pound of heroin to make 20% more profit. How many ounces of cut will he need?”

    Hey, the teacher was not suspended because of the drugs and the pimps in the problems, but because the dealers and the pimps were black (look at their names). That’s raaaacist!

    Teacher should have received a commendation for teaching practical life skills.

    Really not sure why they suspended the teacher? If they can make high school toilets trans friendly and inclusive, why is this test a problem?

      They buried a Detroit drug lord known as “Maserati Rick” in an elaborate coffin shaped like a high end car after he was shot to death many years ago…

    Real life math as opposed to common core.

    A far cry from my basic arithmetic relating the same sort of questions around Billy’s bicycle trips up and down the road that I had to figure out in elementary school.
    Seems to reflect the priorities of the current state of adults and children in our society today.
