I suppose our schools could be worse: School’s lessons full of errors

Lockyer said the curriculum consisted of a slim workbook riddled with errors, including:
  • The United States has 53 states but the “flag has not yet been updated to reflect the addition of the last three states” — Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico.
  • World War II began in 1938 and ended in 1942.
  • There are two houses of Congress — the Senate and the House, and “one is for Democrats and the other is for the Republicans, respectively.”
