An elementary school in Georgia is under fire for some questions a 3rd grade math teacher asked on homework. The questions: "Each Tree had 56 oranges. If 8 slaves pick them equally, how much would each slave pick?" And "If Frederick got 2 beatings a day, how many beatings did he get in one week?"
The school says this was an attempt to include a current social studies lesson about slavery into other subjects.
How would you feel if your child brought work home with these questions on it?
