WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WNCN) – A Wake Forest mom says she is appalled after seeing her son’s high school English assignment.
On the second day of school at Heritage High in Wake Forest, Dina Bartus says her 10th-grade son was handed this worksheet in English class.
“He actually broke down and started crying because he said, ‘I felt so uncomfortable, but felt so on the spot that I had to do it.’ He said the pressure was just incredible, and my son doesn’t cry easily, so it really really bothered him,” explained Bartus.
The worksheet, titled ‘Diversity Inventory,’ asked students to share their race, sexuality, socioeconomic status, and religious beliefs. Bartus shared a photo of the assignment on Facebook.
“When some kids were kind of hesitant to do it she said, ‘Hey, it’s OK because I used to be a Catholic and now I’m an atheist and I’m bi-sexual.’ So, needless to say, my son was a little shocked that this was happening in what’s supposed to be an English class,” Bartus said.
