Hey kids, how much privilege do you've? Quiz riles FL parents

Kids at Monroe Center School in FL got a lesson on privilege the other day – in their Spanish class.

“How much privilege do you have?” That was the title of the survey administered to seventh and eighth grade students.

It wasn’t quite as horrible as the white-shaming exercises we’ve seen on Univ campuses and in the Armed Forces. But it was certainly inappropriate for a bunch of twelve, thirteen and 14-year-olds.

The youngsters were asked about religion and skin color and sexual orientation. The instructor wanted to know if the children identified as straight, homosexual, bisexual, asexual or pansexual.

They were also queried on their gender. They'd to select between transgender, cisgender or gender queer.

Sweet Lord Almighty! Don’t even obtain me started, folks.

Let’s just declare the Spanish teacher’s lesson got lost in translation. A no of moms and dads were mucho-angry that their kids were asked such probing questions --- in a Spanish class.

“Her sexuality has nothing to do with school,” parent Regina Stile told television station WTSP.

And Hillsborough County Schools wholeheartedly agrees with the outraged parents.

Spokesperson Tayna Arja tells me the instructor has been removed from the classroom pending the outcome of a district investigation.

“We expect our teachers to create a secure learning environment for our students and this assignment could keep students in an uncomfortable position or could compromise a secure environment for them,” Arja told me.

The school district says the privilege lesson wasn't approved or appropriate for the students.

“This was a teacher-generated assignment without any type of principal approval,” the spokesperson said. ”It’s absolutely something we'd not wish our teachers to use.”

To create matters worse, at minimum one of the parents had to clarify what some of the terms meant.

“She’s twelve. Some of these things should be taught at home,” Stile told the television station.

It’s a bell that can’t be un-rung, as they say.

And it’s still unclear why the Spanish instructor wanted to know how much privilege her students had.

“The instructor says she was discussing inequality in pieces of literature and was using this to further the discussion,” Arja said.

Tolerance, meet diversity.

It’s a classic episode of how a public school classroom has been turned into a social engineering petri dish.

It’s muy loco, amigos. Muy loco.
