High School Vocabulary Exam Question Portrays Conservatives as Bigoted, Anti-Immigrant, Sexists

A high school teacher in Florida included a question on his student’s vocabulary exam that portrays conservatives as bigoted, anti-immigrant, sexists.

The exam was a fill-in-the-blank style and the question under scrutiny was seeking use of the word “volte-face,” meaning an abrupt and complete reversal of attitude.

One of the students taking the exam is a founding member of the school’s Republican club.

Imagine his surprise when he stumbled upon question 7, which read:

“Right when it appeared the nation was becoming increasingly tolerant of alternative lifestyles, immigration, and minorities, the vocal and angry right-wing forced the nation to make a complete ________, embracing bigotry, xenophobia, and sexism.”

Negative Reaction

Imagine how out of touch one has to be to paint the entire “right-wing” as all of those hateful terms.

“It leads people to believe that anyone who leans toward the right — they’re a sexist or racist or a bigot,” one of the student’s mother said. “That happens a lot of times. We hear those kinds of things. We are not, and this doesn’t help.”

After she posted an image of the questions, the mother received feedback from other parents who agreed the wording was out of line.

School officials seemingly agreed as well, saying they were handling the matter internally and adding the teacher should remember the “importance of exercising good judgment when facilitating subjects that are of sensitive nature.”

Handling it internally appears to have amounted to a letter of reprimand, comparable to a slap on the wrist.

Liberals in the Education System

This is the product of allowing liberals to run amok with our children’s education system. They pose questions, topics and policies that they don’t even consider to be offensive without thinking about it. Or they do think about it and just don’t care that they’re insulting conservatives.

There are a myriad of examples.

One school in South Carolina tried to ban the American Flag at football games. A Virginia school recently banned the name ‘Jesus’ from their ‘winter concert.’

Earlier this year, a newly printed AP U.S. History textbook contained passages regarding the 2016 presidential election which suggest President Trump was viewed as mentally unfit by some experts, while repeatedly portraying his supporters as racists.

It is critically important to monitor your children’s school work to avoid things such as this being slipped into their work. The teachers should know better than to use their own politics to indoctrinate students.
