Florida Teacher Suspended for Putting ‘Inappropriate’ Trump Question on Final Exam

trumpIn what may or may not be another bit of political correctness gone wild, an exam question about Donald Trump has been deemed “totally inappropriate” for school.

Malik Leigh works as an attorney and teacher at Palm Beach Lakes High School’s law academy, but according to Palm Beach Post, he’s been suspended for asking students a multiple choice question about how they think the mogul’s presidency might affect the nation:

If Donald Trump becomes president of the United States, we are:

A. Screwed
B. Screwed
C. Screwed
D. Screwed behind a really YUGE wall that Mexico pays for.

This was not the only unusual element Leigh ever planned for his tests. A separate proposed question about proper courtroom procedure for opening statements included some rather humorous answers.

A. Wink at the judge
B. Find the hottest person on the jury and focus your words on them
C. Speak to them as if they are cordial friends
D. Treat them like the MORONS they are

As Leigh’s exam was being reviewed for approval, Principal Cheryl McKeever sent him a letter saying it had “inaccurate content, irrelevant material, unprofessional use of language, inappropriate use of language.” Leigh was suspended from the school afterwards, and as the Post noted, it marks the latest in a legal dispute between him and McKeever over the school’s decision to let him and several other teachers go at the end of the year.

“I’m not pushing a political agenda. To me, it was a funny question,” Leigh said, defending the Trump question. “There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the exam. They’re just grasping at straws at this point.”
