• Parents upset over inappropriate quiz given to middle school students


    Parents are upset over what they say was an inappropriate quiz that was given to middle school students.

    "I've never heard of a boy toy or trophy wife,” a student said.

    She may not have heard of those words, but they were questions on a quiz for sixth-graders in a Virginia middle school.


    Students in the "food and consumer sciences" class were asked to answer questions about what is a trophy wife, a mistress and a boy toy are and their parents aren't happy about it.

    "It's supposed to be a family life driven, make a meal plan, set a table, things of that nature, how to cook, sew, the kind of home-ec that we learned when we were younger,” Lawrence said.

    The school district says the teacher who gave the quiz is under investigation.
