Quote:NJ school exam's "secret" question angers parentsRead more: cbsnews.com
Some New Jersey parents are upset about a standardized test question that asked third-graders to reveal a secret and write about why it was hard to keep.
The question appeared on the writing portion of some versions of the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge given to third-graders this week.
Parents were especially outraged because children may have revealed information that should have stayed private.
"I guarantee you some children will be writing things family members and parents would have rather not revealed to the state," Goldberg said to the Asbury Park Press. He added that if his twin 9-year-old boys, who told him about the question on the test, would have answered "it's none of your darn business" he would have been perfectly fine with their response.
What about the kids that don't have any secrets in the first place and pull something out of their asses to answer the question. What could possibly go wrong for the parents here? Bad times when you cant even trust teachers and school officials to not go gestapo anymore.
At what point do parents start teaching their kids distrust for these people? Actually, they probably should teach them that.
