I have never been a parent, I've never experienced the frustration of dealing with a sick child or the anger of watching your loved one come home crying after school. I can though relate to situations that can stir up a "Red-Flag" - a warning signal that something is definitely no right.

Common sense is all you need to see this is wrong

Common sense will alert anyone when someone tells you to "Not tell your parents" - especially if that last message was delivered by an adult - but from a teacher??? According to Fox News A Minnesota fourth-grade student and her mother expressed concern to their local school board after her class was given an "equity survey" and students were told not to tell her parents about the activity. 

Questions were confusing to the children that were being asked - parents had no clue

Several of the students became upset by the notion of NOT being able to tell their parents - obviously, they had been brought up to recognize anything out of the ordinary - but once again from a teacher??? Check out the video from one of the students explaining to the school board how uncomfortable it was:

So what do you think Equity means?

Everyone has their version - "Fair" or "Impartial" comes to mind - One of the reasons for the "equity survey" is to bring up the role of race and racism - two volatile subjects. If the teacher's goal was to achieve honest answers from the students, why tell them beforehand NOT to tell their parents? Makes NO sense to me.
