A Spanish teacher has been removed from class by the Hillsborough County School District after sending 12-year-olds home with a 'privilege' assignment.
The assignment had children determine 'how much privilege they have' by filling out a chart.
MUST SEE: “I Love my White Male Privilege”
According to the assignment it would appear that white, christian, 'cis-gendered', straight, able-bodied males have the maximum amount of privilege.
The categories the teacher asked to fill out were “Race,” “Skin Color,” “Religion,” “Sex,” “Gender,” “Sexual Orientation” and “Disability.”
Interesting to note that under race, 'Native American' wasn't listed. It would appear as if the Spanish teacher wasn't checking her privilege and considering everyone...

A mother of a student in the class, Gina Stiles, posted the assignment to Facebook and asked,“If your child came home and told you that their teacher gave them this to fill out, what would you do?”

Afterwards, Stiles and a group of other angry parents met with Monroe Junior High Principal Pete Magara. After the meeting the teacher was removed from the class by the school board and an investigation was launched.
Tanya Arja, the spokesperson for the Hillsborough County School District, told TheBlaze that the “lesson was a teacher-generated assignment without district approval.”
“We expect our teachers to provide a safe environment and this assignment could compromise that environment,” she added.

The unnamed teacher told local media that the assignment was designed to teach students about 'diversity' and 'inequality'.
Stiles wasn't having any of the Spanish teacher's explanation.
“To me that has nothing to do with Spanish. You’re here to teach my child a foreign language, not anything else,” she told WTSP-TV.
