A Wisconsin mother claims this quiz was administered to her 16-year-old son and his classmates in their 11th-grade U.S. government and politics class at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis, Wisc.
A Wisconsin mother claims her 16-year-old son’s classroom assignment last week described Republicans as opposed to helping the poor because “it’s a waste of money.”
The woman said her son, a junior at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis, Wisc., was asked, along with other students, to complete an assignment about different views on the political spectrum while in a U.S. government and politics class on Thursday.
The assignment listed a series of quotes and required students to identify which party affiliation best represented each statement.
The first quote read, “We should not help the poor, it’s a waste of money.”
The mother, who asked only to be identified as “Heather” to protect her son’s privacy, said he chose option “E” for “Fascist” because he “didn’t know what else could be the answer.”
When the assignment was returned, the answer was marked as incorrect and the teacher wrote in option “D” for “Conservative/Republican” instead, his mother told FoxNews.com.
