A 10-year-old girl has been hailed as ‘courageous’ for making a stand against an ‘offensive’ question on her school maths test.
After Rhythm Pacheco finished her homework, mum Naomi looked over her young daughter’s work and discovered the powerful message she had left for the teacher.
She decided to share the work online, leading to a huge response praising the student for standing up for her beliefs.
Working through the maths homework, Rhythm came across a question asking her to compare the weights of three women and determine ‘how much heavier’ Isabelle was than Sue.
Circling the question, she wrote: “This is offensive. Sorry I won’t right this it’s rood.”
The pupil from Utah, who was initially worried about how her teacher would respond, then wrote a letter to explain why she didn’t want to solve the problem.
“I don’t want to be rude but I don’t think that math problem was very nice because that’s judging people’s weight,” she said.
“Also the reason I did not do the sentence is because I just don’t think that’s nice. Love Rhythm.”
