Fairfax County Public Schools included “military kid” as a privileged category during a bingo-style exercise instructing children to identify their privilege.

Set up as a kind of bingo card with a free space in the middle, the exercise asked students to identify different categories of privilege based on race, gender, family dynamics, and socioeconomic status.

Assistant Superintendent Douglas Tyson told parents who complained about the exercise that it came from “an approved FCPS English Curriculum lesson that is centered around students selecting a ‘choice’ test and examining in detail the author’s perspective on a wide-range of issues,” the Daily Wire reported.

Besides the “military kid” square, tiles on the bingo card, which was titled “Identifying Your Privilege,” included “having your own bedroom,” “feel represented in the media,” and “involved in extracurricular activities."
