TheBlaze reached out to Kyle Olson, co-author of the book "Conform: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education" for comment.

Olson told us, "I found it strange." Adding, "But I think it reveals the impact Common Core is having."

We also contacted the show's producers at Sony to ask why the category was included. We will update this post when they respond.
