"Is the Coronavirus a scam"? - Teacher Asks Students on Quiz

Is the coronavirus a scam school quiz
The Correct Answer Was True on The Quiz

‘Is the coronavirus a scam?’ School science quiz question leads to pushback for Texas teacher. A Texas school district is under fire after an online quiz question posed to junior high students.

A science teacher at Pearland Junior High East asked her students, “Is the coronavirus a scam?” according to a post on the Parents in Pearland Independent School District Facebook page. The answer “True” was shown as the correct answer on the quiz.

The question was part of a quiz meant to familiarize students with their new online system, according to an email from the school principal posted on Facebook. The principal sent a similar statement to KPRC and added an explanation.

“The teacher’s intent was to spark conversation,” Principal Charles Allen told the TV station. “It was not to imply the virus is not serious or to make any political stance. The question has since been taken down.”

Most parents on the Facebook group for the Houston-area school district did not feel the question was an appropriate one to ask the students.
