Don’t Know Much About History
The Telegraph reports that 10-year-olds in the UK lack a detailed knowledge of the events of WWII, with some of them giving amusing answers. A compendium:
It is 1899 and Denzel Washington, the American president, orders Anne Frank and her troops to storm the beaches of Nazi-occupied New Zealand.
That honestly doesn’t bother me. The fact that many of their teachers (at least in the US) probably wouldn’t do much better without the answer key is more problematic.
