Where are they getting these fifth graders? I went to one of Ohio's best school districts (according to Ohio, not me) and they didn't teach the things they claim these fifth graders knew.

  • Bavaria is a state in what European country?
  • What is the name of the first first-lady?
  • Of the following, which is a blood vessel in the human body? Tibia, capillaries, cilia.
  • (First grade spelling) how do you spell nervous? (Example first grade spelling words)
  • What is the official language of Australia?
  • How many demonstrative adjectives are in the following sentence? That scruffy dog with the short tail chased the multi colored cat through the tree.

I call bullshit.
