Description: Parents in Hopewell are outraged after they say controversial material was included on a quiz given to students at Carter G. Woodson Middle School.

A ‘shocked’ mother reached out to 8News after her 11-year-old daughter brought home an assignment from her Family and Consumer Science class.

Tara Sample, whose 11-year-old daughter, Faith, brought home the assignment, said she is baffled that a teacher would think the questions were appropriate for middle school students.
