Staff at Carter G. Woodson Middle School in Richmond, Virginia have found themselves in the middle of a controversy after an assignment given to students was deemed inappropriate by the parents.

The worksheet, which was distributed in a Family and Consumer Sciences class, contained a quiz that asked students questions relating to extramarital affairs.

What in the world? OK parents and teachers — Tell me what you think about this worksheet apparently assigned to students at one local middle school class.

The "Family Quiz started with basic questions about family structure like "What do you call your father's father?" but as it progressed, some of the questions asked "What do you call a married man's girlfriend?" and "What do you call the much younger boyfriend of an older woman?" reports the Associated Press.

The teacher allegedly downloaded the worksheet, which the students answered with words like "Trophy Wife" and "Boy Toy" from the internet.

"I couldn't believe that an educator would be giving something like that to an 11-year-old," Tara Sample told WTVR. "No one in the school system needs to be teaching my daughter what a mistress is or a trophy wife or boy toy."

The school's superintendent later confirmed that the assignment was not part of the approved curriculum, and addressed their next step in a statement.
