Lawrenceville - A spokeswoman says a suburban Atlanta teacher has resigned after an investigation found third-grade students being assigned math homework with word problems about slavery.
One of the problems read: “Each tree has 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?”
Another was: “If Frederick got two beatings each day, how many beatings did he get in one week?”
Gwinnett County schools spokeswoman Sloan Roach said Wednesday an investigation has concluded into four teachers who gave out the assignments at Beaver Ridge Elementary. She says the school system accepted the resignation of one teacher but declined to elaborate on the rest.
Parents were angered by the math problems, and the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People had called for teachers to be fired. - Sapa-AP
Romans took over France, Germany, England and a lot more European country's, Gauls, barbarians and Kelts were white. This was way before the White men met Africans. Egypt came later. So no its not only black people that were slaves. Want me to now tell you about Jews vs Hitler?
At least Boo-ya is not totally anonymous. And your anonymous comment is pure incomprehensible drivell. Slavery was a product of Africa & AFRICANS, not ANYWHERE ELSE!
Wow Boo-ya, is that so? You have no flipping idea of what you are talking about. You wouldn't even have a chance to say what you just said.
i am a slave in this rat-race
