Joanne Bolser, a teacher at Burns Middle School, Alabama has been suspended after patents complained to management about the explicitly racist quiz she gave to their children.
The teacher who is set to retire this year, is accused of telling Year 9 students, aged between 13 and 14 to complete the exam which featured questions on ‘hos turning tricks’, ‘drive-by shootings’ and a drug dealer who ‘sells an 8 ball’.

The ‘LA Math Proficiency Test’ is understood to be a parody quiz posted on the internet.
A mother, Erica Hall brought the incident to light after her son sent her a photo of the test.
She says she “couldn’t believe” the photograph and added: “They took it as a joke, and she told them that it wasn’t a joke, and they had to complete it, and turn it in.
“I was shocked because she’s a strict teacher.”
Bolser will face a hearing and be able to appeal, but is understood to have been suspended just a day before the end of the school year.
