Let’s not start blaming teachers just yet.
First of all. It’s complete BS. The original post is very similar to chain emails that have been circulating the Internet for years.(http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art3982.asp).
it’s not original, so it puts the whole story in suspect.
Also, your 8th grade test in ~1900 was not in any newspaer – unless your newpaper is reporting complete b.s. – you read it in an email – which was also b.s. (http://www.snopes.com/language/document/1895exam.asp)
I would suggest that before you start blaming teachers for this, you to do your own research into the validity of some of the stuff you read.
Teachers are by and large not the problem. So, don’t go placing blame on them. They’re some of the few people who are actually trying to make a difference in education.
So, yes, Sizz’s post IS funny, but it’s not so sad, because it isn’t true.
If anyone thinks that my post was meant to be anything but fun then the school you went to has failed you miserably……….. Your intellectual processing is below pare and you re lacking a sense of humor.
Your teachers were asleep at the wheel or at a union meeting …………… of course my post was all in fun and BS geeeeeezzzzz
If you had to go into Snops.com to find clarity in my post then your common sense and pure logic is below a Notre Dame C+……..
The sad part of this post is that recipients of the today’s American education system have to depend on web sites like Snops.com to compensate for their lack of common sense………..
