A history teacher at a Seattle high school allegedly gave a student a failing quiz grade after he answered that only women can get pregnant and only men can have penises.

 

Seattle student failed quiz for answering 'only women can get pregnant;' school responds

A 10th-grade Ethnic Studies World History teacher at Chief Sealth International High School administered the quiz. The test focused on "understanding gender vs. sex" and asked students to answer a series of multiple-choice and true or false questions.

 

Question 4 of the exam asked students to identify whether the statement "All men have penises" is true or false. The student marked the statement true, which was labeled as incorrect by the teacher.

 

The Seattle high school student's quiz was marked incorrect when he said that it was "true" that "all men have penises." (Jason Rantz)

 

Question 7 of the quiz similarly asked students to identify whether the statement "only women can get pregnant" was true or false. The teacher again marked the student's answer incorrect when he said the statement was true.

 

Several other questions asked students to answer questions like, "When someone uses 'they/them' pronouns, what does that mean about their gender identity?" and "True/false: Transgender people are gay."

 

Speaking with Jason Rantz, author of "What's Killing America," on KTTH, the student's mother, who asked to remain anonymous, expressed concern that the school is allowing teachers to bring political beliefs into the classroom.

 

"I keep trying to wrap my head around how it is legal to teach inaccurate information and force students to answer against their beliefs or receive negative scores," the mother said.

 

The student's answer was also marked incorrect when he said it was "true" that "only women can get pregnant." (Jason Rantz)

 

She also claimed teachers have called her son "f---d and racist" and a "product of the patriarchy that teaches young boys not to care about anything."

 

The school outright denied that such name-calling occurred.

 

A district response inquiry revealed that a "knowledge check quiz" was administered approximately two weeks ago at Chief Sealth International High School in an Ethnic Studies class but stressed that the quiz results did not impact the final class grade of students.

 

"The Seattle Public Schools (SPS) course description for the Ethnic Studies World History class underscores that students will be ‘investigating... the global economy, society, and culture.’ Claims that the student was called names have not been reported to SPS. We have confirmed with school's principal that this is the first reference to any name-calling," the district continued.

 

"SPS remains committed to fostering inclusive environments that encourage the exploration of contemporary issues, particularly the examination of power systems such as racism and patriarchy. This dedication extends to providing a space for thoughtful exploration and dialogue on these issues."
