DeKalb County, GA. – Outrage from parents has poured into the DeKlab County School District in Georgia following word that students in middle school have been giving a quiz asking them to identify various sexual identities including lesbians, gays, and bisexuals.
The middle school’s health teacher assigned a quiz that defined 10 “sexual identity” terms, such as gay, lesbian, and transgender. The quiz required the sixth graders to identify and differentiate between various sexual orientations and identities, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.
Parents say that their children should not be exposed to sexual identities in schools, and that these health classes should focus on puberty and the physical changes taking place among the children. They believe that it is inappropriate for the health class teacher to assign this quiz.
It is still unclear if the DeKalb County School District approved this curriculum, but the district did acknowledge the parent’s concern in a written statement.
“DCSD has been made aware of this alleged event, and is working to verify its authenticity. We will investigate this event and take action, as appropriate, once that investigation is completed,” a spokesman for the district said to FOX 5.
