HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A middle school teacher in Alabama is reportedly on administrative leave after giving students a questionable math test.

The test has circulated on the internet for years as “the L.A. Math Proficiency Test” and as CBS News reports, features word problems about “pimps, cocaine, and gangs — among other questionable topics.”

One of the questions reads:

“Rufus is pimping for three girls. If the price is $65 for each trick, how many tricks will each girl have to turn so Rufus can pay for his $800-per-day crack habit?”

The Mobile County Public School System confirmed to CBS affiliate WKRG a teacher at Burns Middle School is now on leave.
