About a dozen parents, mostly of middle school students, have complained to school officials about a survey that went out to their children’s email addresses including questions asking them to state their sexual orientation and gender preference.

School Superintendent James Jette defended the Milton Public Schools Quality Review Survey by saying it is being done by an outside consultant, Cambridge Education, as an important diagnostic tool for the district that is part of an equity audit currently underway.
