LENOIR, NC – Some North Carolina parents said they are upset and stunned after learning about a quiz their children recently took in school.
WSOC reported students in an AP psychology class at West Caldwell High School were told this was an “intelligence test.”
According to the report, district officials said the quiz, “The Chitling Test,” was a “mock test to give students exposure to cultural bias.”
According to WSOC, the school said students and faculty discussed bias and misconceptions in different cultures.
District officials said the teacher has been told not to use the test again and they are investigating the situation.
The superintendent of West Caldwell High School told WSOC the test has no place in the classroom.
He reportedly met with local African-American clergy, members of the NAACP and the police chief Thursday morning to discuss the test. Afterwards, they held hands and prayed.
