Often my reading about school makes me angry. There's a big conversation on Mr. Money Mustache about how everyone knows their kids are wilting in school. And yet, they still send their kids to school. It's amazing to me how much parents understand the detriments of school even as they turn their brains off to follow the status quo.
So then I offend everyone. Because pretty much half the readers of this site send their kids to school. Maybe more. I don't know. But they always think I'm too enraged and on my high horse to the point that it feels like the majority of the readers here send their kids to school.
So I thought I'd try to be fun. Maybe I need to be more fun. Today's post is fun. It's a series of test answers that are totally wrong but still genius. I found them on Distractify.
Of course I am still able to look at this test answer and tell you that it shows how absurd tests are. That the world is not full of right and wrong answers. But I can also laugh. So we are doing that today. Here's another.
And this seems like a good time to tell you about the moment I knew I would marry my first husband. He told me that on the AP English test he wrote a few sentences about how the incorrect grammar made the first part of the question not apply to the second part of the question. And he got a 4 out of 5. There's a special kind of intelligence there that is very attractive to me – it's the combined deep thinking and risk taking.
I want my kids to learn that. And it won't be from taking these tests. Or going to school.
