    I would yank my kid out of that school so fast their heads would spin.

    I also have to point out that I go to doctors a lot for various reasons. I have never, ever heard a mother in a waiting room studying with their kids. Until the other day when I heard one studying biblical facts. I wish they had been studying math with as much fervor. And who knows. Maybe they do. But I didn't hear it.

    No wonder our educational system is a joke.

    OH MY GOD! I just saw that there was a second page that says:

    The next time someone says the earth is billions (or millions) of years old, what can you say?

    Answer: Were you there?

    And this kid got a 100%. It literally makes me sick!

    First of all, if this is not a joke of some kind, I would not think it would be a public school? No 1, teaching creationism over evolution would not be allowed. No. 2, it's just plain stupid. It's impossible for a rational person to believe otherwise, and No. 3, I would love to see a history test on slavery.

    Who's stupid idea was this? Maybe some religous fanatic had something to with this. If I had kids, I would so pull them out of that school so fast that the teachers' heads will spin. Why must are educational system go downhill like that?

    Son of a gun! Must be an extremely fundamentalist group of nut jobs. No child of mine would ever be enrolled in a place like that. I feel so sorry for the children.

    It's actually pretty funny that "Were you there" is a correct test answer in a religious school.
