Wake County middle school worksheet takes a page from the Maury Show

The Maury Show is famous for conducting DNA tests for guests who have doubts about the paternity of their children. Yesterday’s show, for example, was “6 Kids denied…5 men tested…Who’s the father?”

I received a photo of the worksheet from a parent who has a child that attends Daniels Middle School in Wake County.  Please note that I have not conferred with school officials or verified the authenticity of the assignment.
