After reading the first question in his maths quiz, this Alabama student was outraged with what he saw. Even though the boy was not a liberal, he felt hurt. Not knowing what to do he texted his mother with a picture of the question. His mother upon seeing what the question entailed promptly dialed 911. But before the dispatcher could answer her call, she thought better of that and hung up. Instead she dialed the school to inform them of the issue. Because she exposed the middle school teacher’s disturbing ‘sense of humor’, the math teacher has been placed on administrative leave for an undetermined amount of time…
Her son was not the only student at Burns Middle School who was offended by the math quiz. And they were not just upset because it was challenging. Drugs, guns and prostitution were some of the numerous disturbing subjects the students were subjected to in the maths quiz.
Erica Hall was the mother who first exposed the teacher. She could not believe that the middle school teacher was writing math questions involving criminal activities because many of the students were black. Hall quickly took action to shut this disturbed teacher down.
Eight grade math quizzes normally entail questions involving money or the number of apples and oranges, however what these students were subjected to will shock you.
Here are some of the questions they were asked:
“Tyrone knocked up four girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls he knocked up?” reads one question.
“Dwayne pimps three hos,” reads another question. “If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $800 per day crack habit?”

Many of the student initially thought the math quiz was a practical joke. They laughed it off and wanted to pretend to be cool and get it. But the teacher claimed it was not a joke and then forced them to solve the problems. The teachers view was that these underprivileged kids should get real life math skills. However the teacher done this in a very insulting way.
The teacher has been placed on administrative leave, pending and investigation and may loose their pension and other perks.
The teacher was identified as Joanna Bolser.
Do you think this teacher deserves to be fired?
