This Quiz on 9/11 was Given to 5th Grade ChildrenSubmitted by RobHino on Sat, 03/09/2013 - 02:02
A friend of mine was tagged in this post on Facebook. It is apparently a test given to a 5th grader at the school district I went to years ago near Corpus Christi, Texas.
I'm not sure what's more disturbing...the quiz or the parent's comments.
Here's the parent's comments:
So, when did it become okay to teach our children that the United States is to blame for the September 11th terrorist attacks? This test was given to my son and other 5th grade students at the Flour Bluff Intermediate School after they watched a video titled "Remembering September 11th". I was shown this video Tuesday and was shocked by it's content. This appalling video blames our country for the the murders of over 3,000 people.Today I met with members of the administration and asked that this video be pulled to which I was told that they would "review" it. The most unsettling part of the meeting was when one of the Flour Bluff school administrators informed me that she didn't see any problem with the video because she also believes that our "bad decisions" resulted in our country being attacked. Folks, we have a serious problem. This is nothing more than good old-fashioned propaganda and there are people at our kid's school who think this is perfectly fine. Well, I don't and if you don't either please take action. Parents, it's up to us to protect and defend our children. If we don't stand up for our children, who will? Please message me if you would like to help take back our schools -- together we can do this.
Here's a link to the original post on FB.
What are your thoughts on the quiz and on the parent's comments? I posed this question to the OP, "So, what is the correct answer to question #3 and #5 Kara?"
