9th Graders Homework: Who Is The Baby Daddy?

From Breitbart:

Ninth Grade ‘Baby Daddy’ Biology Assignment Asks Students to Determine Who Fathered a Fictitious Baby

By Dr. Susan Berry | February 17, 2014

A ninth grade student at Romeo High School in Michigan and her father were shocked to discover a question on the teen’s biology homework that asked her to determine who, from a list of potential candidates, fathered a fictitious baby.

"Romeo High School"? No wonder this subject came up.

According to the local CBS affiliate in Detroit, the question was as follows:

The sister of the mom above also had issues with finding out who the father of her baby was. She had the state take a blood test of potential fathers. Based on the information in this table, why was the baby taken away by the state after the test?

Possible responses to the question regarding the identification of the baby’s father included the cable guy, the mailman, the cab driver, the bartender, and the guy at the club.

“The goal is that the students are understanding blood types and DNA and possibilities based on the makeup of the two parents,” said Romeo Schools Superintendent Nancy Campbell. “But, again, this painted a picture, I think, that was not appropriate. My first thought when I saw it was that it certainly been worded better.”

The teen’s parent, Larry Basaj, called the school district to complain.

According to other reports, Mr. Basaj was the only parent to complain.

“What are they teaching… what is… I couldn’t come up with the words,” Basaj told WDIV. “I was like, ‘oh my God.’ It’s teaching them that it’s OK to not know who it is because you can have the state help you. And if they can’t help you they are going to take your child away, and it’s not the way it is. I was beyond fired up last night.”

Basaj sent his daughter’s incomplete homework back to school with a note that read, “We teach our children not to sleep around.”

How backward of him.

Though, according to WDIV, the school superintendent agreed that the homework was inappropriate, she also said that the three-page worksheet came from a teaching website that includes questions using “concepts the children can understand.” …

Well, that is probably all too true. In fact, many of the students might have been asking a very similar question about their own ancestry.

According to Caroline Schaeffer at the Independent Journal Review:

This explanation is nearly as dismaying as the question itself: where to begin? The fact that the teacher is using a web site to find problems to assign for homework? The fact that the teacher (presumably) read the homework and still assigned it to children? Or the fact that these questions are considered to include concepts easily understood by children?

"Including this type of material in a homework assignment for children effectively normalizes this type of lifestyle," Schaeffer added…

Who are we to judge?

    Well, I am fairly sure it wasn’t Reggie Love

    maybe many of the students could be brothers and sisters.?
    how about a guys picture on milk cartons(1% of course)
    “have you seen this Dad?”

  3. Right of the People says:

    Reminds me of an old joke. The certain ethnic girl comes home and tells her mother she’s pregnant and the mother asks her: “Are you sure it’s yours?”

  4. Petronius says:

    Husbands and fathers have been made redundant; they’ve been replaced by government.

    Both of the last two Democrat presidents were bastards, and who knows or cares who their mamas’ baby daddies were?

    Nobody cares. Certainly not the voters. And that’s the new normal.

    Nearly all assignments are coming off the internet. It is part of the National Common Core curriculum.

    That way it can be used globally. Now you would think Kerry approves of this school assignment
    as he insults 3rd world countries that he believes they think the earth is flat, it also aids children from large Muslim families and now it is a very good assignment for children in the US because
    of Disney children shows and Chevrolet car commercials showing same sex marriages.

    For quite some time all the schools have been using the same books in every state, but the paperless to save the environment has led to most assignments being taken off the internet.
    The schools select the sources students use to make it easier to grade papers.

    Even students physically attending Universities and Colleges are using the internet for assignments to save money and paper. And internet schools are charging more for degrees.

    1. The question was ridiculously stupid to begin with, as the state rounded up several men as potential deadbeats on a Jerry Springer show, seems to be perfectly reasonable to today’s students and faculty.

    2. It’s accepted that the state is going to steal away your kids.

    3. “concepts the children can understand.” Why can’t we just use good old traditional Punnett Squares? Those worked perfectly fine without any controversy.

    *As you can see, when you try to “reach kids” by using vocabulary or situations that are familiar to their dismally lost culture and community, you wind up looking like a racist, so why bother?

    Hitler had a comment on German youth. Can’t remember it exactly, but “State”
    had something in it.

      Was it this? “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.” — A Hitler.

      THE AHS Adolf Hitlers Schools sure sound a lot like US schools today. Especially, all the “required leadership” “world view” classes run by incompetent “labor” and militants.

      And now 3 meals of required food a day in school is to brainwash children.

      Excerpts from Wikipedia to show schools really “bore Hitlers Name”.

      Adolf Hitler Schools (AHS) was an association of 10, ultimately 12, “National Socialist Schools”, which Hitler allowed on 15 January 1937 to bear his name as he earlier had other schools.

      Their founding was based on Robert Ley’s plan to erect a “Gauburg” (citadel) in every Gau, thereby creating an NSDAP school system.

      This would also have “transformed the state-supported” “National-Political Educational Institutes”.

      Until 1941, the Adolf Hitler Schools were supported by the financial office of the “German Labor Front”.

      The AHS were to set an example for the “revolution” in education:

      Thus the “Hitler Youth (HJ)” announced its intent to “transform” schooling.

      Yet in practice the AHS achieved hardly more than the Education Institutes’ model of a duplicate “leadership structure” for the boarding schools.

      HJ leaders and Order Fortress teachers were employed as “school leaders” (German: Schulführer);

      A Gauleiter did not supervise schools in his territory; this was done by a “commander” (Kommandeur) from the “Youth Leadership”.

      Thus with varied ambitions and usually little expertise, the “educators” worked on “educational and “curricular plans”.

      “Unity” was as meager in the effort to combine basic subjects in a Volkskunde (folklore) as it was in the content and introduction of such “new subjects” as “schooling in worldview”

      (Leadership, very Healthy, and Race) were considered in choosing the boys.

      In 1938, these criteria were specified by Kurt Petter, the inspector of the AHS. He defined the technical and qualitative procedure for the assessments. Besides cognitive skills,

      emphasis was now put on social competences (e.g. team work, companionship and cooperativeness).
      Sweet-light posted an article on MSNBC’s correspondent Melissa Harris-Perry, an African-American professor at Tulane…saying in a promo for MSNBC that “we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.

      “We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had a private notion of children; your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children,” Harris-Perry opined.

      Hillary Clinton had to write “It Takes a Village” since Hitler just mentioned “boy pupils”

      Save your books because the internet can get hacked and history changed with a few clicks.
      Children may just have to learn by flashlight someday.
