SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah school district has put a high school teacher on leave for assigning students a questionnaire that asked about their sex lives, whether they’d used drugs or alcohol or had abortions and scored their answers to rate them as a “nerd,” ’’indecent” or “hopeless and condemned.”

Weber School District spokesman Lane Findlay said Monday that the questionnaire was given to juniors recently at Roy High School as part of an “Adult Roles” course that teaches students about human relationships.

Findlay says students at the high school about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City were asked to complete the 30-question survey and turn it in as a class assignment.

He says it was not part of the course curriculum and did not know how many students were given the assignment.
