🔥 Parents Revolt Against Invasive School Project! 🏫😡

Well, well, well... looks like this school project has stirred up quite the controversy! 😱 Our protagonist found themselves in a sticky situation when their kid's teacher assigned a family tree project that delved way too deep into personal matters. 🙊 From addiction to prison time, this project left no stone unturned! 😳 Understandably, many parents were NOT happy about airing their dirty laundry to the entire class. 🙅‍♀️ Despite the teacher's good intentions, 2/3 of the class opted out, causing a major uproar! 🗣️ Now, the school's equity committee is accusing these parents of sabotage, and the dreaded "Karen" label has been thrown around. 😒 But let's see what the internet thinks of this juicy drama... 🍿👀

Protecting privacy: NTA. Committee's questions: inappropriate. Diversity & Inclusion? 🙄
