Middle School Students Given Quiz Asking About Mistresses & Trophy Wives
Parents of some Virginia middle-schoolers were up in arms about an assignment which quizzed students on terms like "boy toy" and "trophy wife."
The online worksheet, reportedly sent home with students in a Family & Consumer Sciences class, also asked questions about extramarital affairs.
One question asked: What do you call the much younger and beautiful wife of an older, wealthy man?
The answer was "trophy wife."
Another question asked: What do you call a married man's girlfriend?
The answer was "mistress."
Parents quickly contacted school administrators to ask about the worksheet.
The teacher at Carter G. Woodson Middle School of Hopewell, Va., did not follow the approved curriculum or submit the online worksheet for approval, the school district said.
