College Instructor Fired Over Controversial Test Question

Portland Community College instructor fired over test questions.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — “Rufus is pimping for 3 girls. If the price is $65 for each trick, how many tricks will each girl have to turn so Rufus can pay for his $800-per-day crack habit?”

That is one of the questions on a test given to students at Portland Community College through their Climb Center, a workforce training program.

Here’s another question:

“Johnny has an AK-47 with an 80-round clip. If he misses 6 out of 10 shots and shoots 13 times at each drive-by shooting, how many drive-by shootings can he attempt before he has to re-load?”

A PCC spokesperson told KOIN 6 News the trainer who gave this quiz is an independent contractor. Or was, since the school is firing the trainer.

It appears as if the questions originated as an online joke. It is not clear how the trainer decided to use them.

But some of the students said the test was very inappropriate.
