What would you do if your kid came home with this quiz?







link to Snopes confirmation

quote:

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.

I'm assuming it was a private school, no?

we'd be finding a new public school teacher. can't do anything about this kind of retardation in private schools, unfortunately they're allowed to teach whatever they want.

From a "private religious school", according to Snopes. Therefore, if you don't approve, then take your kid out of that school.

Free market is a wonderful thing...unlike the government model that forces kids to go to a certain school, whether a good or shitty one, merely because of where that kid resides.

That's gotta be fake. But if my hypothetical son/daughter came home with this hypothetical quiz then I would put him/her in a different school. But chances are that I wouldn't put a child of mine in a school that teaches creationism in the first place.

So it's okay to give kids an improper education?

Can we just have a hogwarts and teach them wizards stuff?
I always thought private schools were better than public schools as far as education.

Heck I know many atheist parents whose kids go to Catholic school and were even baptised for the better education. Just kind of shocked me to see them actually teaching something so stupid.
