Submission + - Georgia School Math Assignment Teaches About Slave (cbslocal.com)

mjr167 writes: A Georgia school decided that it would be a good idea to have a crossover between a social studies class learning about Fredrick Douglass and slavery and math. The resulting homework assignment asked students the following questions: “Each tree had 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?” and “If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week?” Apparently several teachers collaborated to put the assignment together.
