Bizarre H.S. Biology Lesson Teaches Promiscuity, Fails at Blood-Typing

I’m sorry to say that we didn’t have this sort of question
at good ol’ Mater
Dei High School
in New Monmouth, New Jersey. But then again, I
was no good at science anyway, so I probably wouldn’t have gotten
the right answer.

Audri Basaj, a freshman at Romeo High School, just wanted to get
her bio homework on DNA done when she got to a question that
stumped her.

It reads: “The sister of the mom above also had issues with
finding out who the father of her baby was. She had the state take
a blood test of potential fathers. Based on the information in this
table, why was the baby taken away by the state after the

As if that question isn’t tacky enough, look at the list of
possible fathers: Bartender, Guy at the club, Cabdriver and Flight

Upon seeing the assignment, Basaj’s parents
understandably flipped out and apparently sent the paper back to
school with
a note reading

Superintendent Nancy Campbell said the question came from a
three-page assignment about blood types. It came from a website — — which the teacher has used for getting
problems that have the components using the concepts the children
can understand.

Campbell said the question will be revised.

Wotta relief!

And while they’re revising the question, school officials might
want to check the credibility of the source. According to this
calclulator, there’s simply no
that a Type O mother is going to give birth to a Type AB
kid. So breathe easy, Bartender, Guy at the club, Cabdriver, and
Flight attendant. But for god’s sake, get a VD test already.
