|Suggestive Math Test Raises Eyebrows|
A Maryland school district apologized to parents in September after a 10th-grade geometry teacher gave students a math test filled with inappropriate questions.
The test contained phrases like "Jose has two ounces of cocaine," "Willie gets $200 for a stolen BMW," and "Raul gets six years for murder," officials in Prince George's County confirmed. A parent said her child reported that the teacher explained the meaning of terms like "cutting" drugs. (nbc4.com, 9-29-04)
