‘Baby Daddy’ Biology Homework Upsets Local Dad [Video]
I think that if my daughter brought home homework like this, I'd be upset too.
Can't they just dissect frogs like we did?
14 year-old Audri was working on her high school biology homework when she came across a question regarding DNA that she didn't understand. The high school freshman went to her father for help and when he saw the phrase "baby daddy" he was not pleased...at all.
The question, from Romeo High School reads as follows;
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 state?
The list of potential fathers listed in the table in the homework was just as inappropriate. That list includes bar tender, cab driver and guy at the club.
The outraged father immediately complained to the Romeo school district. They say that Larry Basaj was the only parent to complain about the homework and that the question came from an online source, teachingbioformatics.com, which isn't working at the time of writing.
All of the details are in the video below.
