OOPS! Forget yesterdays posting of the 8th grade test from 1895. It has come to my attention that this is actually an Urban Legend! You can read the full details at: Urban Legends Reference Pages: Wooden Spoons (1895 Exam)
I still stand by my basic ideas, though: I wish I could’ve gotten an education in 8th grade that would’ve let me pass that test, and I think we need to spend more, not less, money on education.
