A Florida father is demanding answers after he found an inappropriate question in his daughter’s homework assignment for her anatomy class.
The question was asking about a baby’s blood type, but used the words “baby daddy” and dealt with a woman who slept with her ex-boyfriend and his best friend.
Omar Austin’s daughter is in 11th grade at Westside High School in Jacksonville. He says he was appalled by the question in the assignment.
The question reads in part, “Ursula was devastated when her boyfriend broke up with her after having sex. To get revenge, she had sex with his best friend the next day.”
The question is about blood types, and continues if her baby daddy is her ex-boyfriend, what could her baby’s possible blood types not be?
Austin says the questions should be left for reality TV and soap operas.
“The words ‘baby daddy’ and ‘baby mama’ being used, that’s foresight. The fact that she’s having sex with one guy and to get revenge on this guy she has sex with his best friend the next day? I mean, that’s just not something that I want to teach any student,” said Austin.
Duval County Schools released a statement:
“The question was highly inappropriate and was not part of a district assessment. We are thankful to the parent who contacted the school directly to share his concerns. Immediately upon being made aware of this matter, school and district leaders began conducting a review of the situation. Appropriate and corrective action will be taken.”
