(PHILLY) — A Bucks County high school is feeling the heat after math students were given a question to solve that involved sexual abuse.
The students at Pennridge High School in Perkasie were given a homework assignment that involved trying to figure out which family member assaulted a young girl.
In a statement, Superintendent Jacqueline A. Rattigan apologized and said the question was “downloaded from a website that allows teachers around the world to share educational resources.”
