Mom Claims 5th-Grade Son’s Quiz Blames 9/11 Attacks On United States

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (CBS Houston) — A Texas mother claims a quiz her son took blamed the United States for the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Kara Sands posted on her Facebook page earlier this month a quiz her fifth-grade son at Flour Bluff Intermediate School took after watching a video entitled “Remembering September 11th.” One of the questions on the quiz asked “Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?” with the correct answer being “Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.”

Sands called it “propaganda.”

“This appalling video blames our country for the murder of over 3,000 people,” Sands said on her Facebook.

She says she talked with school administrators about the quiz and that one of them said that 9/11 was due to the “bad decisions” made by the United States.

Flour Bluff school officials tell KRIS-TV that Sands was the only parent to complain about the test.

More than 11,000 people have “shared” the quiz after Sands posted it on Facebook.
