(EAGNEWS) — TAMPA, Fla. – A Tampa middle school Spanish teacher who incited parental outrage with a student questionnaire about “privilege” resigned on Thursday.
First year teacher Yoselis Ramos, 23, asked her seventh- and eighth-grade students at Monroe Middle School last week to fill out an assignment titled “How much privilege do you have?” that inquired about sexual orientation, race, gender identity, mental illness and other personal information. The assignment asked students to circle the terms that apply to them, and provided options including “queer gender,” “pansexual,” “cisgendered,” and “asexual,” The Tampa Tribune reports.
Parent Regina Stiles raised concerns about the assignment after her ADHD daughter circled “mental illness” under the disability category.
