Nathan Hale Quiz: Conservative/Republican - 'Should Not Help the Poor, Waste of Money'

A Lefty Wisconsin teacher and Nathan Hale High School are making national news.

From FOX News:

A Wisconsin mother claims her 16-year-old son's classroom assignment last week described Republicans as opposed to helping the poor because "it's a waste of money."

The woman said her son, a junior at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis, Wisc., was asked, along with other students, to complete an assignment about different views on the political spectrum while in a U.S. government and politics class on Thursday.

The assignment listed a series of quotes and required students to identify which party affiliation best represented each statement.

The first quote read, "We should not help the poor, it’s a waste of money."

The mother, who asked only to be identified as "Heather" to protect her son's privacy, said he chose option "E" for "Fascist" because he "didn't know what else could be the answer."

When the assignment was returned, the answer was marked as incorrect and the teacher wrote in option "D" for "Conservative/Republican" instead, his mother told FoxNews.com.

..."I was shocked and then I was very angry," she said, claiming she called the superintendent of West Allis-West Milwaukee School District Friday morning to inquire about the assignment.

The school district issued a press release late Monday saying students were "required to take a political spectrum quiz, which is not a quiz in the traditional sense with right or wrong answers; instead, the quiz asks survey questions. The answers to the questions place students on the political spectrum. While the survey is completed online, no personal information is entered, including name, login, and student number."

The district also said the spectrum quiz would not be used again in the future.
It's great that the mother blew the whistle on the smearing of Republicans and conservatives in this Wisconsin public school.

It's good that the quiz won't be used again at Nathan Hale.

I'm glad the school was put in the spotlight and disgraced for using this extremely biased quiz. According to the school district's press release, the quiz was supposedly a survey, without right or wrong answers.

If that's true, then why were questions marked as wrong?

"We should not help the poor, it’s a waste of money." CORRECT answer: Conservative/Republican

That's not a "political spectrum quiz" with no right or wrong answers.

Whatever, I hope this serves to remind Nathan Hale and other Milwaukee area public schools that this sort of classroom Leftist indoctrination has a consequence-- being humiliated nationally.
