ALOHA, Ore. (AP) - A white privilege survey was assigned as homework for a group of Oregon high school seniors.

Parent Jason Schmidt provided KATU-TV (http://bit.ly/2cGKZm8) a photo of the survey his son was given. He says it’s inappropriate to teach students about what he called the latest political fad.

Parent Sarah Rios-Lopez said she applauds teachers who give students information to form opinions.

The survey photo shows students were asked to assign numerical values to various statements based on how often it is true for them.

The first statement said that the student can be in the company of people of his or her own race most of the time.

Beaverton School District officials say the class is intended for students to have civil discussions on topics including race, sexuality and religion.
