VICTORIA An assignment that asked students at a high school in British Columbia to identify the political leanings of racists and immigration opponents showed a bias against people with right-wing views, says a father whose son was given the worksheet.
Matt deFouw said he took his concerns about the worksheet to the Kamloops-Thompson School District, which launched an investigation.
B.C.s Education Ministry said in a statement Thursday the worksheet is not part of the school curriculum and it will not be used again in the district.
Essentially, all the questions on only one piece of paper paint people, even right-of-centre people, as xenophobic, misogynist racists who want to enact a brutal police state that wiretaps and executes its citizens, deFouw said in an interview.
He posted the worksheet from his sons Grade 10 social studies class on his Facebook page. The school district confirmed that it was part of an assignment at Valleyview Secondary School
One question is, Who is a racist? said deFouw. And the answer is right-wing people. Thats about as clear as you need to be. Another example of a question was, Who believes that women should stay home and be mothers? The answer is right wing.
The assignment included 10 questions. DeFouws Facebook post included the answers provided to the students by their teacher.

Have they heard any uncensored rap lyrics lately?
Reagan said it’s a false construct. There’s only Up or Down, not right or left.
Try sane and insane.
Stalinists, plain and simple.
I prefer just plain “demons” and that’s how I will continue to refer to them.
Just projecting their own mental disorders...
The true political spectrum is simply Authority vs. Liberty, with only legitimate authority being valid. Arbitrary authority—that which cannot justify itself under the principles of Individual Freedom and Limited Government, and the Bill Of Rights—should be rejected on general principle by all Americans...
