This is a picture of a graded test that came from a WGST Radio caller that has a child attending a government school in Rockmart, Georgia.
Notice something a little odd?
For those of you that may not have had your morning coffee or tea yet, in the right margin you will see the phrase ‘new all.’
-Notice it appears not just once, but twice.
And many seem so puzzled as to why American kids are falling so far behind the rest of the world educationally, despite the fact that this country spends far more per student than any other nation on Earth.
Update: I did not listen to the show on Friday, which was when the call was on the air live, but I heard them discussing it today, and they both sounded pretty adamant that this was a misspelling of the word “knew.”
And judging from the misspelled signs at teacher protest rallies in Chicago last week, I would say this is not just a problem here in Georgia.
