Middle School Quiz Requires Students To Label President Trump An 'Idiot'

A teacher at Watson B. Duncan Middle School gave a quiz with a question that labeled President Donald Trump an "idiot."

Palm Beach Gardens, FL – A middle school teacher has been reassigned and an investigation launched after she included a question on a quiz that labeled President Donald Trump an “idiot.”

The multiple-choice quiz question described a U.S. President as “45th Pres; 2017; Republican; Real Estate businessman; Idiot,” and asked students to choose who it described - President Donald Trump, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, or Jimmy Carter.

Cameron Cary told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that his daughter took a picture of the quiz questions given to her at Watson B. Duncan Middle School in Palm Beach Gardens and sent it to him.

“This was an actual question on my daughters middle school test today. Furious,” Cary tweeted along with the photo. “Going to raise some hell with the principle. Indoctrination will not continue. (See word “idiot” at the end of our presidents multiple choice answer). Not having it!”

The quiz questions went viral and started a firestorm on social media among President Trump supporters.

The school has reassigned the teacher pending the conclusion of the investigation, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

The principal of Watson B. Duncan Middle School later issued a letter of apology to parents.

“The question was inappropriate, and demonstrated an unacceptable lack of good judgment on the part of the teacher,” Principal Phillip D’Amico told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Cary met with school officials on Thursday and said the administration has been responsive and cooperative.

“We have to raise awareness about the systemic indoctrination and bias that takes place every day in our kids schools,” he tweeted afterward. “Kids and teachers shouldn’t be afraid to speak up when it happens. In the end I just hope this will start some changes in the culture of our school systems.”

The school has not yet explained how such a question ended up on a quiz, but Cary told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel he thought it came from Quizlet, an outline learning tool that lets teachers write their own questions.

Good thing they didn't do that when Ozero was president. They wouldn't have been reassigned I can assure you.

This country is turning into a nation of cowering weaklings. Laugh about it and move on. Every little thing is so blown out of proportion. One school, one teacher and this is news.

Grow up people.... I voted for Trump and think it’s funny.

The NEA (National Education Association) is a rabidly democratic organization which orders teachers how to think and vote. This, however, is disgusting.

That is dead wrong, regardless of who the President of the United States is!! Very disrespectful of the office! It reeks blasphemy for the highest office in our land! This teacher needs to be suspended at least, if not terminated! Let's face it, if it were a police officer, they'd be done and if they weren't protestors would be lining up calling for his or her head! WRONG ON SO MANY ACCOUNTS!

Unions , in a large way teachers donate many millions to Democratic candadates hoping to get better contracts. Yet they whine about the NRA. They screw taxpayers with a substandard product. Better to privitize the system that is clearly failing.

If a child is at an 8th grade reading level, it's not too outlandish to view the president as an idiot when they hear him speak.

The office of the President Of The United State Of America is not a joke. The President should be respected. Everyone has an opinion, Their opinion should not always be expressed. A public teaching position is not a place to voice your political opinions. Although you may think this is funny, other may not. Case in point. Our Country is the strongest in the world. We have the luxury of stating whatever we want whenever we want. There may be one day in the future this many not be the case.

Some people do not have Children, but their minds are impressionable no mater the age. This is why we have a whole generation a children and young adults that do not respect law enforcement and Adult figures.

The golden rule always applies. Treat other how you would like to be treated.

This is right in line with New York declaring it a crime, punishable with a $250,000 if you use the term "illegal immigrant". So much for free speech.

The real idiot on that page is the Democrat Jimmy Carter. Unbelievable what goes on in some schools today.

I do not believe she should be fired however ...... it needs to be made perfectly clear that this type of behavior is unacceptable in a learning environment and will not be tolerated. Keep your opinions to yourself or find another job.

I am a bit concerned that President Trump might be impeached because of high crimes and misdemeanors. Even law enforcement officers hate it when a President breaks the law!
