White Privilege Survey Given at Oregon High School
From Oregon Live:
At least one parent is unhappy with a "white privilege survey" sent home with Aloha High School seniors earlier this week."The way this survey is read, it almost wants to like, shame you for being white," Jason Schmidt, the father of an Aloha High School senior told KATU Thursday.The survey, shown by KATU, poses statements and asks students to score themselves between zero for seldom to never true to five for often true. The statements include: "I can be in the company of people of my race most of the time" and "If I should need to move, I can be pretty sure of hassle-free renting or purchasing in an area in which I would want to live."KATU says the goal of the survey, according to the school, is to create empathy and teach students how to have larger, difficult conversations."I feel that he should be learning actual education," Schmidt told KATU, "and not be a part of some social experiment or teacher's political agenda,"
