Phoenix teacher on leave for assigning racy personality quiz

PHOENIX (AP) – A Phoenix high school teacher has been placed on leave after assigning a personality quiz that asked questions about sex, wife-swapping and other personal topics.

ABC 15 (KNXV-TV) reports that about 100 9th through 12th graders at Betty Fairfax High School received the 200-question quiz. The self-scoring survey had questions ranging from “Are you irritable sometimes?” to “Do you prefer ordinary sex?”

Some parents complained about the adult content on the survey and called the Phoenix Union High School District to complain.

The Betty Fairfax principal sent a letter to parents calling the quiz inappropriate and offensive. District officials say the survey was not approved and policies were not followed.

The incident is under internal investigation.
