Hilliard teacher resigns after being put on leave for quiz assignment
A Hilliard teacher has resigned after landing in hot water for a controversial quiz.
Sarah Gillam, a English teacher at Hilliard Bradley, was placed on administrative leave after giving her students an online "moral" quiz that included questions about animal abuse, incest and others that were described as “weird” and “disturbing." Several parents complained after hearing from their children about the quiz.
"The circumstances that led to the resignation are disappointing, as she has recognized," the Hilliard School District said in a statement. "While the District’s approved curriculum and educational materials encourage students to think critically, several items in this online quiz were simply inappropriate and inconsistent with established classroom resources. This should never have been given. The District works hard to earn the respect and support of students, parents, and the community at-large and we regret any mistrust this may have caused."
