Police Officers Criticize Wording Of 5th Grade Quiz Question About Breonna Taylor & Jacob Blake


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A question on a fifth grade quiz is sparking controversy. A school district in Fayette Co., Kentucky is pushing back on claims the quiz targeted law enforcement. The first question reads: “What is the relationship between Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake?” The first answer choice reads, “Both were victims of police violence, sparking protests against racial injustice.”

The Kentucky Peace Officers Association is angry about the quiz, saying in part, “While it is the responsibility of educational leaders to shape the future, it is not their right to do it in a manner that is designed to intentionally and negatively influence young minds and promote a political agenda.”
