OnlyM3: Obviously teachers deserve raises.
lepidoptera: Stunning lack of age range from this reporter indicates he, too, lives on Mars.If this was a survey of 3 year-olds I wouldn't be all that surprised.
timujin: OnlyM3: Obviously teachers deserve raises.Maybe if we offered a decent wage for teachers, we'd get a higher caliber of applicants.
kid_icarus: While 88 per cent said Earth is where they are from - some believed they lived on Saturn or Mars.A 12% dumbass ratio actually isn't that bad.
Oldiron_79: That joke was stupid, so they changed it to Urectum.
FunkOut: Already went through all the planets with my 6 year old. Last month she came home from school and had been in a fight with another child who had claimed there was no such thing as desert foxes. Yesterday they sang a song about rainbows and the teacher told me my kid was objecting to the abscence of indigo and violet because they had been lumped together as purple.Teach your child science early and you'll find they're arguing with people.
Miracle Whip: I can actually believe this-quick CSS storyMy niece is 7, and argued with me that Ohio is not a state, it is a city, and that I was a total dumbfark. Fed up, I said "What the fark are they teaching you in school??"....answer: "How to color unicorns!!"
Facetious_Speciest: The same proportion do not know a triangle has three sides, with four per cent saying it has two.wut
busy chillin': A science teacher was lamenting that fact that not all of her students knew the Earth revolved around the sun.The art teacher replied "Well, don't feel bad, most of my students think the World revolves around them."
Slaxl: Firstly you gotta account for kids making joke answers, and secondly you gotta account for the fact that this was a study done by someone who wants publicity for a theme park.
zarker: Miracle Whip: I can actually believe this-quick CSS storyMy niece is 7, and argued with me that Ohio is not a state, it is a city, and that I was a total dumbfark. Fed up, I said "What the fark are they teaching you in school??"....answer: "How to color unicorns!!"This is why I can't be a parent. There'd be punishment for the annoyance and just ignorance of that. You're wrong, quit arguing you little shiat.

kvinesknows: there are more people on Facebook than there are trees on planet earth[i.crackedcdn.com image 610x599]
brantgoose: Two words: home schooling.At least one in ten Christians and miscellaneous other religionists refuse to believe that the Earth IS a planet, so this comes as no surprise.What kind of theme park was this? Bible? Waterworld? Idiocracy the theme park experience?
OnlyM3: timujin [TotalFark]OnlyM3: Obviously teachers deserve raises.Maybe if we offered a decent wage for teachers, we'd get a higher caliber of applicants.How much teachers get paid - state by state 50-75k a year. Not bad for not having to produce a functional product.Query, how is your theory working with CEO's and politicians ?
d23: I had a classmate that argued quite a long while that Chicago was a country. This was during the 1980s. It gets worse.
YixilTesiphon: My daughter doesn't know what planet we live on.Of course, she's four months old, so I'm okay with that./she has recently discovered that having her chin tickled is hilarious
