Sexual assault question part of homework at Bucks County school

PERKASIE, Pa. — Pennridge High School officials are apologizing after students were given a math homework assignment that asked which family member had sexually assaulted a girl.

The question provided a math formula and asked: "Angelou was sexually abused by her mother's ___ at age 8, which shaped her career choices and motivation for writing." Pennridge students needed to use the formula before deciding whether the answer was boyfriend, brother or father.

KYW-TV reports the Pennridge School District said the assignment was "downloaded from a website that allows teachers around the world to share educational resources."

The district said steps have been taken to make sure it never happens again.
