Not really.

For whites, the school is not about teaching you, but about making sure you obey the system.

For blacks, it's daycare.

Public school has nothing to do with education or creative thinking. It's all about indoctrination and conformity. I should know, I went to one and failed miserably at it. Thank God.

It redpill's them only if their parents back them up, and show how the teacher and or curriculum is either totally inflexible or retarded

I would buy two different sized cheese pizzas and take my kid through creating a scientific proof that the teacher is wrong. Hopefully most parents would take a similar approach. They're not good parents if they let their children believe this answer is wrong.

This. Theyre not teaching thinking theyre teaching compliance.

If you dont back your kid up in this situation they learn that the right answer is what the people in authority want and not the logically best answer.

Due does. About the 4th or 5th time you see this and then get in trouble arguing you realize you are surrounded by some kind of idiots.

I was sent to the principal's office once because I was arguing with my computer teacher the difference between upload and download. The guy didn't know the difference between a dumb terminal and a host server and was explaining the data path for data transferring backwards.

Of course the principal didn't understand me or want to take my side, but I was right.

Fuck our public schools.

Yeah I think your conclusions are similar to normal kids. Kids are smarter than adults in a lot of ways.

Eventually you learn to both say the obvious and still not get marked wrong.

E.g. "Assuming both pizzas are the same size, blah blah".

I once answered a question "9¢" when the teacher wanted "$0.09" and was marked wrong. I'm glad my parents stood up for me in a meeting with that bitch of a teacher.

Same here only I got in trouble for awhile for talking back. I'm not sure if its worse or better now if you make a teacher look like the idiots they often are. You know, not hurting the kid's self esteem. But that probably only applies to so called minority children.

This makes me wonder how many times it happened. I recall in 6th grade geography a teacher asked me what a physical map was. When I gave the answer he told the class "That answer was so good it should be in the book, it was better than what is in the book."

Our children are being taught by children, with an agenda. That's dangerous.

Almost seems like it would be better just to make a list of things for your child to study and reserach, sit him in front of a computer with internet and have him figure it out on his own.

just a small nitpick... but agenda is plural. agendum would be the singular. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/agendum#English

[–] cyclops1771 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

But since the subject the object "agenda" is referring to is a plural noun (children), wouldn't that make the agenda plural, as well?

I imagine the 'correct' answer was covered in the Reasonableness section in their study material. So the desired answer is just as the instructor wrote, even though this seems incredibly stupid.

The implication is that you're supposed to answer "how" with "not"(clearer example: "How can I get to the moon with my pickup truck?" "You can't because it has no rocket boosters"). I can't blame the kid for answering the wrong question, but the teacher sure as hell gets a 0 for completely and utterly failing to understand a child's simple mistake.

well the way it's worded it could be interpreted as: Marty ate 2/3rds of Marty's pizza and Luis ate 5/6ths of Marty's pizza. That's how it'd be possible.

Yes, the teacher (not professor)'s answer is imbecile level. What happens at this education level is the kids have already done graded worksheets, practice tests, etc. with nearly the exact questions and the answers previously dictated. It's training to give the desired answer within the boundaries presented.

[–] shrink 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

So the desired answer is just as the instructor wrote

No, it isn't, because that "answer" directly contradicts the information given in the question. The question explicitly states that the kid who ate 4/6 of their pizza ate more pizza, and the teacher's "answer" claims that the OTHER kid ate more pizza, even though the question itself says they're wrong.

So either the teacher is retarded, or whoever wrote the question is retarded by asking "how is this possible" (which assumes it is, in fact, possible) rather than the yes/no question of "is this possible?"

I don't disagree that the teacher is likely retarded. But ultimately, this example is lacking context, as I already illustrated: You are ignoring the Reasonableness header.
