Mich. school's homework about paternity draws controversy

School officials in suburban Detroit are revising a question on a homework assignment about DNA that a student's father says was inappropriate.

WDIV-TV reports Romeo High School freshman Audri Basaj was working biology homework when a question about paternity tests came up. It asked why the state would take away a woman's baby following blood tests of potential fathers.

The question left Audri stumped. Her father took a look, and Larry Basaj says he was "beyond fired up" after reading the question.

On the homework, the list of potential fathers included: bartender, "guy at the club," cabdriver and flight attendant.

Romeo Community Schools Superintendent Nancy Campbell says the question came from a three-page assignment about blood types that was posted online.

Campbell says the question will be revised.
