Obscene 'Sexual Tension Quiz' in High School

Parents in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida became outraged when they read the 14-question quiz, given for a grade in the high school AP psychology class, and are still fuming as the offending instructor continues to teach because of the union contract, according to the school administration.

Palm Beach Gardens' Dwyer High teacher Frank Rozanski is in hot water after he gave his advanced placement psychology class the quiz which was full of sexual innuendo, according to WPTV.

"You know that's something, I don't know, you wouldn't even see on a porn site, I don't know, it's that bad," the parent who didn't want to be identified, said. "To have a teacher giving that, you know, to me that’s sexual harassment to these kids."

A spokesperson for Palm Beach County's school district said disciplinary action was taken against Rozanski, but didn't say what that action was.

Concerned parents say whatever discipline was doled out by the district simply isn't enough.

They say the Rozanski shouldn't be a teacher at Dwyer High School any more.

The school district confirmed Rozanski is still a teacher at Dwyer.

A quiz meant to teach high school students how innocent notions can become sexually charged as a person matures has landed a longtime William T. Dwyer High School teacher in hot water.

"We do feel that it was over the top," said Dwyer Principal Joseph Lee of the quiz given Monday by Frank Rozanski to his advanced placement psychology class.

School district spokeswoman Vickie Middlebrooks said: "Our principal is handling it within the progressive discipline guidelines of our (Classroom Teachers Association) contract."

According to Robert Dow, the president of the Classroom Teachers Association union, the maximum discipline a principal can hand out to a teacher on their own is a verbal or written reprimand. A principal can recommend suspension or firing of a teacher, but such actions must then be approved by the school board, Dow said.
