JOLIET AREA MIDDLE SCHOOL TESTS STUDENTS ON THEIR TRUMP ATTITUDES
PLAINFIELD – Language arts at Timber Ridge Middle School in Plainfield, Illinois not only assesses students’ vocabularies, but now the class questions their attitudes toward President Trump.
A mom of one the Illinois school’s 8th graders posted on Facebook a photo of the questions she found offensive:
Some of the test questions are poorly written, and some of the correct test answers don’t make sense. But there’s no question that they all are meant to affect the 8th graders’ attitudes toward the president.
For instance, fill-in-the-blank Question #16 says “There is great adversity among Americans, especially among those who are strong supporter (sic) of President Trump and those who (sic) are against him.”
The answer the teacher was looking for and didn’t mark incorrect is “adversity” when a less-charged word that would be useful would be “diversity.”
They get more controversial – #19 says: “It was difficult for me to ________ my feeling when I learned Donald Trump had been voted in as our 45th president.”
And Plainfield taxpayers are paying healthy property taxes to fund this … More to come.
