A Florida father voiced his displeasure over the sexually explicit assignment his 11-th grade daughter was given from school.
The following question appeared on his daughter's anatomy exam at Westside High School in Duval County: “Ursula was devastated when her boyfriend broke up with her after having sex. To get revenge, she had sex with his best friend the next day. Ursula had a beautiful baby girl 9 months later. Ursula has type O blood, her ex-boyfriend is type AB blood, and his best friend is type A blood. If her baby daddy is her ex-boyfriend, what could her baby’s possible blood type(s) NOT be?”
Mr Omar Austin, who hails from Jacksonville, states that he believes his family to be quite modern, but still thinks that this is not something one should ask an eleventh grader at Westside High School

Mr Austin: “Those type of questions should be left for reality TV and soap operas, not an eleventh grader’s anatomy class.”
He furthermore questioned the apparent lack of morality of the person who made the question: “The words ‘baby daddy’ and ‘baby mama’ being used, that’s foresight.”

“The fact that she’s having sex with one guy and to get revenge on this guy she has sex with his best friend the next day? I mean, that’s just not something that I want to teach any student.”
After a barrage of social media complaints, the Duval County Public Schools responded with the following statement: "The question was highly inappropriate and was not part of a district assessment. We are thankful to the parent who contacted the school directly to share his concerns. Immediately upon being made aware of this matter, school and district leaders began conducting a review of the situation.”
“Appropriate and corrective action will be taken. We encourage parents to contact their school leaders directly if they ever have any concerns about their child’s school and instructional experience so that we can immediately work to problem-solve."
