(Scroll down for video) A long time and beloved teacher is in trouble after asking inappropriate questions on a math test.

The teacher of Alabama, was placed on leave from her job as a high school teacher over the 10 question math test.

JoAnne Bolser, who is set to retire at the end of this year from the Cranford Burns Middle School in Mobile, came under fire after parents say that she handed a mathematics test that asked students about guns, drugs, pimps and prostitutes.

The test was taken from the Internet, and was reportedly used many times by other teachers, but they did not get into trouble.

The “City of Los Angeles High School Math Proficiency Exam” was supposed to poke fun of gang violence and crime in that area.

However, students and their parents in Bolser’s class did not find it funny.

Some of the questions were as follows: “Dwayne pimps 3 ho’s. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $800 per day crack habit?

“Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?

“Leroy has 2 ounces of cocaine. If he sells an 8 ball to Antonio for $320 and 2 grams to Juan for $85 per gram, what is the street value of the rest of his hold?

“Ramon has an AK-47 with a 30-round clip. He usually misses 6 out of every 10 shots and he uses 13 rounds per drive-by shooting. How many drive-by shootings can Ramon attempt before he has to steal enough ammunition and reload?”

When the principal learned about the math questions, Bolser was placed on paid administrative leave.
