Takiema said she complained to the school and then got an apology the next day from her child’s teacher. The Department of Education explained that the assignment was not part of the curriculum and that the teacher had pulled it from an old workbook that she brought from another school.

Not all parents at PS 201 agreed with Takiema’s reaction.

“It’s not like we live in a place where we don’t see guns,” said Crystal McDowell, who has a son in Kindergarten.
