This photograph of a fourth grade "science quiz" went viral last week. I refused to post it until now, because I just couldn't believe it was real.
Unfortunately, it seems as though it is. Snopes has managed to track down a parent whose daughter was given this quiz, who said:
"I didn’t know that this was being taught to her until we heard a radio commercial together about the Discover the Dinosaurs exhibit was coming to the TD Convention Center [in Greenville, South Carolina].
The Commercial starts out, “After 65 million years, the dinosaurs have returned …” She commented immediately that it was only four thousand years ago. When I corrected her, she snapped back, “Were you there?”"
so just because it's private they can teach kids anything they want. Most of this board probably went to a private Christian School.
That is EXACTLY what it means.
