I think you're getting confused. Public schools are the good school boards and the catholic ones are shit here in Canada.

Catholic schools are shit in canada! They are the bomb in Ireland. You should write to the pope and complain...

Honestly still remembering my school experience I blame the students. All of my junior high and High school classes I heard over and over, "we will never need this when are going to need this" followed by a definite lack of learning. Now when I whip out knowledge that is general education 101 I look like a genius to morons with college degrees while I have only a high school diploma.

I know one college professor that if you wrote such a poor essay along with a plethora of grammatical mistakes, she would return the paper with an application to McDonald's stapled to it. Just a possibility.

We don't call it "No Child Left Behind", but we have basically the same thing in Canada (at least until you get to high school). My brother failed 6 out of 8 of his grade 8 classes and he still graduated middle school. Now he's fucked because he's in high school and doesn't know a lot of the basics. It's stupid, you need to make sure kids understand the foundation before you start shoving new material down their throats. If that means they repeat a year, so be it.

To be fair though, i don't think McDonalds employees or the typical blue or white-collar worker would need to know about which genus classification is our frozen food coming from. (:

The Bible belt of Canada? Where exactly might that be? I've been here 30 years and never heard the expression.

Stop hating on the U.S., all of you dipshits. We're not stupid as a whole. You're not exactly showing off your 'superior intellect' by being crass and stereotyping others..

90- touching story, but what about the kids who got a low score? America, like every nation, has smart and dumb people. We just expose the dumb ones more.

#90, IQ has nothing to do with education. If public schools worked better you might know that.

Hmm, if all the students were confused on that, maybe the teacher has something to do with it... Jk OP, you got a class of dim wits this year.

These comments made me sad...how do you not put it all together? A shark is a fish. Fish have gills. Therefore, sharks have gills. That's second grade stuff.

I'm the same. I always assumed that water went through the gills and the oxygen from the water was filtered through to the lungs. I really didn't know that animals with gills didn't have lungs. I don't feel stupid for this, I love learning new things :)
