Students at an Ohio middle school were asked to decide who they would leave behind if the world was about to end, using age, religion and other descriptions as markers for their decisions.

The assignment sparked widespread uproar.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Whom to Leave Behind” asked students at Roberts Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls to choose eight out of 12 people to put into a space ship and take to a different planet because the world was ending, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

Choices included a homosexual pro athlete, a militant African-American medical student and a female movie star who was a victim of sexual assault.

Parents of some of the students called the assignment insensitive.

“What does her being Muslim have to do with it?” Bernadette Hartman, referencing another description, told WKYC-TV. “What does being female have to do with it?”

Adam Miller posted a copy of the assignment on social media. He wrote:

I spoke with the teacher and I certainly can appreciate the fact that he wants to promote diversity etc. It was a sincere conversation and I encouraged the continued discussions on this topic. He will be removing this particular assignment from future lessons. In retrospect, I believe things should be tweaked towards youngsters…

Inappropriate project for young kids. In my view, it clearly uses conjecture which is suggesting this fictious behavior is somehow an accepted pattern. Additionally, it’s implanting prejudicial thoughts in these young impressionable minds. This is NOT building a – “culture of caring” – this is building a culture of animosity, antagonism & hostility! Why can’t kids be kids? Sad to see this indecent indoctrination forced upon our kids…

  1. Kids go to public schools, because their parents can’t afford the pricey private school. Our tax dollars support the public schools, if you could sent your children anyplace and use your tax dolllars there, maybe some would be able to afford it.

  2. The test is not new, it is used to indoctrinate young folks into placing value on human beings according to traits other then their inherent value given to them because they are created in the image of God reguardless of who they are. It is a Godless view of people’s inherent value.

  3. I have a 9-year-old grandson who hates Trump. I asked him for his opinion on colored spun sugar and he didn’t have one. He has a political opinion but does not understand cotton candy. Yup our schools do not educate and more, but they do indoctrinate.
