UK grammar school squeezes in bizarre homophobic question into a students’ maths quiz

What a bizarrely homophobic question

A grammar school in the UK has sneaked a bizarrely homophobic question into a maths quiz for the students.

The teacher at Royal Grammar School, an all-boy’s school in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, included a homophobic statement about same-sex marriage in a question about percentages.

‘If in a town 70% of the men are married to 90% of the women (and each marriage is between one man and woman, as God intended when he made humans male and female) what percentage of the adult population are married?’

Parents have slammed it as homophobic and for teaching children homophobia instead of teaching calculations.

Royal Grammar School headmaster Philip Wayne apologized, claiming the question was part of a test for higher-level students and was set by a teacher who retired ‘a long time ago’. The teacher still ‘volunteers’ at the school.

‘I’m sorry on behalf of the whole school community of governors, staff and boys for any offense this has caused,’ Wayne told Bucks Free Press.

‘First few boys to pick up the test, noticed the question concerned and referred it to staff. As soon as it was picked up it was quickly withdrawn from the department.’

The volunteer teacher ‘will not be returning to RGS’ as ‘staff are expected to abide by the teachers standards if they’re on the payroll or not.’
