A bizarre quiz given to sixth-grade students in Hopewell, Virginia asked students about ‘boy toys,’ trophy wives and illicit affairs as part of a lesson about family relationships, reported WTVR. Now the school has issued an apology after parents complained.
The 20-question assignment given in a family and consumer sciences class is mostly innocent. Students were asked things like “What do you call the son of your uncle?” or “What do you call the son of your husband’s first marriage?”
It’s the final four questions that gave parents pause:
Question: What do you call it when a married person has a relationship with someone else?
Answer: An affair
Question: What do you call a married man’s girlfriend?
Question: What do you call the much younger boyfriend of an older woman?
Answer: Boy Toy
Question: What do you call the much younger and beautiful wife of an older, wealthy man?
