I don’t know about you, but I love these terrible answers on tests.
Sure, we need to protect our children from violence and perverts, but banning all cameras from school and preventing them from touching each other aren’t reasonable solutions. Read about more stupid security measures over at Cracked.
To some extent, it’s easy to see why today’s kids are so stupid, considering how much of this complete misinformation they still feed us in schools.
Start weeping for your future….now.
If you can find humor in the depressing state of American education, then you will appreciate the new blog Shit My Students Write, which has gems like,
The rebel and onion armies showed grose negligence by having many of their battles right inside national parks, like Gettysburg.
On the other hand, if you know our future is being flushed down the toilet and the prospect makes you physically ill to think about, then you probably shouldn’t click on the link.
When I was in high school, my life management (yes, that’s really what the B.S. class was called) teacher tried to tell us that a women can tell how much her fiance loves her based on how expensive of an engagement ring he bought her. She got really pissed off and wouldn’t answer when I asked, “so you’re saying a rich man is more capable of loving someone than a poor man, just because he can buy a bigger ring?”
As it turns out, that’s not even close to as terrible as some of these terrible lies teachers have told their students. Feel free to share any lies your teachers told you in the comments.

I am beyond enamoured with this concept -creating artistic plush dolls based on kids drawings. Best of all, the pieces were then sold to the parents as a fundraiser for the kid’s school. I can only pray that they have awesome fundraisers like these when I actually have children.
