(Washington Post) Montgomery schools officials Tuesday discarded the results of a student-created survey of 10th-graders at Poolesville High School after a parent raised concerns about the nature of questions that asked about family income, political affiliations, religion and sexual orientation.

The five-page survey also probed student views on marijuana, same-sex marriage, blame for the government shutdown, the sale of assault rifles and whether President Obama would face equal criticism if he were white.

Schools officials said the survey was designed by students as part of a project in an Advanced Placement course on national, state and local government. The class was studying polls, surveys and trends.
