OMG-this just makes me crazy. People are actually okay with this continually dumbing down of the education system.

http://www.snopes.com/lost/fraction.asp

Question: in the U.S., is "secondary" school the same as grades 9 through 12? In Canada we have Junior high (grades 7-9, then high school (grades 10-12/13). My son has had fractions and decimals in math curriculum since grade 2.

'improper' fractions have no place in any respectable school system, public or private

Are Mississippians really so stupid that they can't understand mathematical concepts as simple as a larger number being divided by a smaller number in the form of a fraction?

I really have a hard time believing this one.

Well Snopes researches these things then comes to their conclusion, which for this item, they've concluded that it is true. They list their source at the bottom of the page. I'm sure it can be found online elsewhere but I'm not looking.

Edit: Snopes isn't a site for satire, but theres a lot of stuff that makes you laugh.
