(In today's Atlanta Journal Constitution)
Gwinnett County parents and activists have blasted the school district's response following reports that students at a Norcross elementary received a math worksheet that used examples of slavery in the word problems.
School district officials said the principal at Beaver Ridge Elementary School will personally work with teachers to come up with more appropriate lessons and will offer more opportunities for the development following the uproar created by the worksheet that included questions such as the following:
"Each tree had 56 oranges. If 8 slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?"
"If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in 1 week?"
