Whoa: Students Asked if Parkland Shooter 'Deserves to Die' In School Assignment

Students at Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs, Florida, were given a rather shocking assignment: to take a quiz about whether or not Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz "deserves to die." To make matters even worse? Coral Glades is only a 10 minute drive from Stoneman Douglas so this should hit close to home.

Images of the quiz made its way around social media. Parkland survivor Cameron Kasky said the school board should be ashamed:

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter, Meadow, was killed during the tragedy, also chided the assignment:

The high school released the following statement on their website about the assignment:

Coral Glades High School administration was unaware that an assignment, which included insensitive content concerning Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, had been distributed to students today. The material was from a subscription-based publication, used as a curriculum resource. The school’s leadership has pulled the assignment, is instituting an approved review process of all such materials and regrets that this incident occurred. Broward County Public Schools is working with the publisher to make them aware of our concerns.

According to teachers, the assignment came from an outside workbook designed at "sparking conversations" around the death penalty, WABC-TV reported. The worksheet actually came from The New York Times’ Upfront, a magazine for high school students.
