Conservative commentator Dave Rubin shared a stunning 5th-grade school assignment he said a friend sent to him — the revelation being the latest example of the absurdity going on in public schools today.
“An unknown enemy has launched a nuclear strike on Long Island,” the assignment states.
Students are told they have 20 minutes to get to a local fallout shelter and when they arrive there will be ten other people waiting to get in. The student is then instructed to pick 6 survivors to join them in the shelter.
The choices include a 16-year-old pregnant girl, a police officer with multiple charges of brutality, a 38-year-old retired prostitute, a 75-year-old priest, a 35-year-old sterile female doctor, a lawyer husband and his alcoholic wife, a 31-year-old homosexual architect, a 50-year-old musician once addicted to coke, and a 28-year-old drifter with no apparent skills.
“Holy cow, is this what comes after Woke?! Sent to me by a friend from her son’s 5th grade health class. (Public school.) Legitimately beyond insane…” Rubin wrote.

Turns out, 5th-grade health teacher Mandy Bieder was “removed from the classroom” this week at Howard B. Mattlin Middle School, located in Plainville, N.Y., after giving the questionnaire to her students, according to News 12 Long Island.
“Our school, and our district as a whole, do not approve nor support assignments that are age-inappropriate, out of alignment with the curriculum, and fall outside of New York State standards. This assignment violated all of these criteria, and has no place in our classrooms,” school officials said in a statement.
Mike Salmon, a resident of Plainview, told the affiliate that the assignment was “inappropriate.”
“There’s no need to ask children who they’d let die in a situation and also to put their sexual preference, their charges against them,” Salmon insisted. “They’re talking about weapons, they’re talking all these different types of things that shouldn’t be brought in the classroom.”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
Did they also just assume that the pregnant person is a girl?

That might be appropriate for an ethics or philosophy class. I recall similar hypothetical discussions in college.
Not appropriate for 5th grade.

Just wow. ✋ majority of 5th graders…. “what’s a prostitute?”
Wait- didn’t the Left determine that “prostitute” is degrading- they are supposed to be referred to as “sex workers” ?
Also, notice the subtle but consistent police butality narrative that makes its way into all…

That moment when you have the power to choose who lives and who dies and you’re 11.

Actually, one could use this exceptional cast of progressive heroes and villains to rewrite the wonderful 30s film “Grand Hotel,” or the 70s camp classic “The Poseidon Adventure.”
