Some middle school students in Georgia got a lesson in slang from the streets this week and some parents are not pleased.

WSAV-TV is reporting a class at Godley Station School got quizzed on words like “punked,” “popo,” “true dat” and “bling bling.”

A parent posted the quiz online and now many are questioning what arrived on the desks of some Savannah-Chatham students this week.

Labeled as “Geography Jumpstart,” the instructions of the worksheet called for the middle school class to define words like “yo,” “dog,” “punked,” “popo,” “sportin’” and “bling-bling” based on the context of sentences provided.
