Don’t burp in class

Being the start of a new week – and close to the start of a new school term, we looked today at a couple of items linked, albeit loosely with education.

This is a new one – well for me at least.

Whilst playing netball at school a girl inadvertently burped but as she looked around to see if anyone had noticed, her teacher locked eyes on her, and was promptly dismissed from the class over her bad manners and un-ladylike behaviour.  

She was then ordered to change into her regular school uniform and spend the rest of the lesson copying from a textbook and then do detention as punishment.

Of course what we don’t know is how loud the offending burp might have been, or indeed whether there was any other misbehaviour involved.

However it could have been worse as some time ago a 13-year old boy was actually arrested in the USA at a school in Albuquerque for repeatedly burping loudly for laughs, which he continued to do from the hall outside the classroom where he had been sent. It was at this point that he was actually arrested by the school’s assigned officer, taken to the patrol car, was patted down, cuffed, and held in a juvenile detention centre for an hour before his mother was called. 

Let that be a warning to you!

Sticking with education – or at least the apparent need of same, we reported today that a recent survey has revealed that a huge number of people in the USA believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows. And when we say a large number of people we are talking of 16.4 million adults. To put that in perspective, that’s equivalent to the total populations of Cambodia, Chad and Senegal.

It was also revealed that a fifth of adults didn’t realise beef is the main ingredient in hamburgers, and 40% of fifth and sixth-graders didn’t realise that cows are used to make hamburgers and three in 10 didn’t know milk is used to make cheese.

Over half of the elementary school students didn’t realise onions and lettuce are plants and that pickles are small cucumbers which have simply been placed in brine or vinegar.

I’m off now to do my homework!

Hope to catch you again tomorrow,
