Would you want your sixth grader to have to answer any of these questions in class? This teacher was already on probation. Big surprise. Now she’s looking for another job.
EAG News had the story:
Fox Chapel Middle School fired a probationary teacher after she distributed a white privilege survey to her pre-teen students.
The survey “How Comfortable am I?” posed the question regarding dozens of hypothetical situations and tasked students with ranking their comfort level on a scale of one to four, with one “not comfortable at all” and four “completely comfortable,” WPTV reports.
Some of the situations included:
“A friend invites you to a gay bar.”
“A homeless man approaches you for change.”
“Your new roommate is Palestinian and Muslim.”
“A group of young Black men are walking toward you on the street.”
“Your dentist is HIV positive.”
“The young man sitting next to you on the plane is Arab.”
“Your brother’s new girlfriend is a single mother on welfare.”
“You discover your teenage brother kissing a male friend.”
“Your black roommate gets a full-tuition minority scholarship.”
“Your mother ‘comes out’ to you.”
District officials did not name the teacher, who distributed the lesson to students in a “Leader In Me” class, but said she had only worked at the school since January.
Obviously parents were upset over their kids being exposed to this “white privilege” survey without their knowledge.
Who can blame them?
