From Chuck Shepherds News of the Weird weekly article:

-- Tone Deaf: In South Africa, with one of the highest incidences of rape in the world, one question on its recent nationwide high school standardized drama test asked students to direct (as if staging a play) the rape of a baby, given only certain props. South Africa's Education Department defended the question as assessing pupils' concept of "using metaphor" as a theatrical technique. The question was based on an award-winning play by anti-rape activist Lara Foot Newton (who, of course, wrote primarily for adults).[BBC News, 11-27-2013]
