Utah High School Teacher Is Placed On Leave After Rating Students Using Drugs and Sex Quiz - blogged by @its_sharr ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A high school teacher in Utah is under fire after giving students a questionnaire that asked about their sexual history and drug and alcohol usage. The survey then provides a score to determine the students' level of purity, rating them from being "pure as ivory soap and maybe a fruitcake", to "normal and decent" to "hopeless and condemned". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The survey was given to high school juniors as part of an assignment to teach lessons on risky behavior in dating. The course, which includes instructions in human sexuality, requires parental consent before students can enroll in the class. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Red flags went up for one student's mother after she found out what was going on in her 16-year-old daughter's "Adult Roles and Financial Literacy" class. "I was in shock. I couldn't believe something like this was handed out to students," said the child's mother. The 30 question survey includes questions from a 1981 Dear Abby column with one of the questions being, "have you (your girl) ever had an abortion?" Sounds a little outrageous for a high school class, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Perhaps the most shocking piece of this survey is that slipping drugs into someone's drink is worth fewer "indecency" points than experimenting with a member of the same sex - in which the survey asks, "even though you are straight, would you go kinky to see what its like?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Webster School District and Roy High School offered a public apology on Monday calling the survey "inappropriate". They continued, "[We] want to extend our sincere apology to the students who were asked to complete this questionnaire, as well as their parents and we assure you this survey will not be used in the future." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The school district also confirmed that the teacher, Candance Thurgood, has been place on administrative leave until they can fully investigate the situation.
