Ohio teacher placed on leave after giving ethics quiz about sex, violence

COLUMBUS, OH (WOIO) - A teacher at an Ohio high school has been placed on administrative leave after giving students a controversial quiz on ethical dilemmas.

In a statement from the Hilliard City School District near Columbus, officials say the quiz that included questions about sex and violence "should never have taken place."

Last night we were made aware of a classroom activity that should never have taken place. We absolutely share the outrage of our parents and community. In consultation with our legal counsel we have put this teacher on administrative leave while we complete our internal investigation.

The 36-question online "Moral Foundations Test" asks the quiz-takers to rank scenarios on a scale from "OK" to "not OK."

Situations include:

  • "Using both a condom and the pill, a brother and a sister decide that they want to sleep with each other - just once, to see that it would be like."
  • "While on a live on-air tv show, a man kills a baby rabbit with a knife."
  • "A man orders a custom-built sex doll designed to look just like his niece."
