Why Our Kids Isn't Learning

Spelling test found in Noe Valley, San Francisco:


Four out of twenty are misspelled, yielding a score of 23/20. This equals 100% (i.e. "NO RETAKE!" which is greater than two "spelling tasks") for a grade of A.

Nice Try!

I have to think some of those were "bonus words" for extra credit, in which case, kudos to the student for taking them on? Then, again, yeah, there'd have to be a lot of them bonus words to miss four and still get over 100%. I've thought about this way too much already.
