Politically Incorrect And Technically Correct

| Learning | December 26, 2014

(I am a student in a US history class. We just finished the 60s era and took an open form test on it yesterday. Today, we trade papers with our neighbors and are grading them out loud so we can debate answers if needed…)

Teacher: “Okay, the next question: ‘The Kennedy Brothers were the first brothers to do what?’ The answer: Run for presidency.”

Student Grading My Test: “Uh, sir… This guy put down ‘Marilyn Monroe’…”

(The class starts snickering. I start fading into the chair.)

Teacher: *considers it a moment* “I guess that is technically true. Full credit for that answer.”
