Updated 5:15 pm 1/9/14 with screen shots of the links located on NYSEDs page at the end of this post to prove that the objectionable material was located on NYSEDs site and endorsed thereon.

DISCLAIMER: THE LANGUAGE CONTAINED HEREIN MAY BE OFFENSIVE, RUDE AND VILE. THIS IS NOT MY CHOICE OF LANGUAGE AND I AM DISTURBED BY IT. I AM QUOTING NYSED LINKED AND ENDORSED MATERIAL THAT HAS BEEN PROVIDED TO OUR CHILDREN ON ITS WEBSITE AS A STUDY RESOURCE UNDER THE LABEL OF “FUN TEST PREP!”

The Regents and King will have you believe that their esteemed Regents Reform Agenda will provide the essential tools and support needed to drive student achievement in a public education system of highly effective schools and professionals through focused areas including Common Core, EngageNY related resources and student support mechanisms to that end.

With that in mind, parents and educators of NY, I would like to introduce you to NYSEDs resource page where your kids can find fun test prep kits and quizzes in the subject areas of: sexy bit--, mexicano, psycho, whitey or paranoid american retard quizzes. Before you get mad at me for this vile langauge, please accept my apologies and know that this is not from me. The language is on and has been endorsed by NYSED!

Thats right, just next to the holy rhetoric about raising the bar via Common Core, a primer developed by the National Parent Teacher Association® (PTA) in response to the Common Core Standards, the Parents’ Guide to Student Success, http://www.pta.org/4446.htm and a Parent Involvement primer http://www.pta.org/topic_parent_involvement.asp you will find the following “fun test prep” quizzes on NYSEDs pages designed to engage and better equip your child to compete in a global economy in the 21st century.

Im thinking either one of two things happened to make this possible. 1) Someone at NYSED utterly dropped the ball and did not vet this material (again???) or 2) despite NYSEDs assurances of safety, security and firewall protection (think InBloom and student privacy concerns) NYSED has been hacked and ths link was diverted by a hacker (again???).

Either way, NYSED demonstrates sheer incompetence right here and now. I am posting and memorializing this to preserve the facts. If NYSED cant even preserve the security and integrity of their own website dont expect me to trust them with my child’s PII!

A parent just sent me a screen shot of what is located at the bottom of one of the quizzes that was featured and endorsed by NYSED: Porn. Nice King!!!! So, 21st century of you!



I stopped after perusing and copying the below threads off NYSEDs page, but other parents have reported to me just now that they saw and were able to access more questionable quizzes involving “slut tests”, “lesbian tests”, “Terrorist” test and there was even an “STD test”, etc. The links have been there undetected for awhile as you can see that people have commented and viewed them. I wonder how long this objectionable material has been available to out CHILDREN and endorsed by NYSED?

Fun test prep, huh NYSED?

Here is the NYSED link to the resource page discussed herein – http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sss/expandedlearningopps/esd-svp/Resources.html

It's illiterate, too. Did they find the writers in house, or did they have to do a talent search?

They are the types of quizzes you see in teen magazines. I can't (or maybe I can) believe NYSED endorses this crap.

NYSED has claimed that they thoroughly vetted the site 18 months ago, and the content has been changed since then. They have since taken the page down.

Talk about a lack of accountability.
