Sexual Orientation among survey questions

NHS cancels fundraiser due to inappropriate question

by Celia Shortt

Newnan High School Principal Chase Puckett has canceled a long-time Valentine Day’s fundraiser for the school due to an inappropriate question asked through a student survey.

On Thursday, students were given a survey outlining their dating interests. The information from the survey would be compiled, and students could pay a dollar to find their “perfect match.” This year, one survey question asked whether they were attracted to members of the same sex, opposite sex, or both.

Due to the sensitivity and privacy concerns with that question, Puckett canceled the fundraiser and is sending home a letter to parents today, outlining the situation.
