Lesson Learned at Maryland School after Homework Referenced Beer

Posted: Updated:

A group of sixth graders in Maryland got a math assignment that involved a reference to "Miller Lite Beer."
  
The assignment started with a question:
"Why did the young actress stuff her autograph into bottles of that less-filling beer?"  Alongside that question was a drawing of a beer bottle with a paper note stuffed in the neck.  As the students answered their measurement questions, their answers filled in the answer to the riddle:  "She wanted to see her name in lites."  Lites was spelled l-i-t-e-s. For Miller Lite.


Parents weren't happy about it and a school spokesman said using "beer" in a sixth grade measurements assignment is particularly embarrassing given the emphasis in Maryland schools on avoiding drugs and alcohol.
