AskReddit Thread: False Things That School Taught Us

Someone on AskReddit got a fun and enlightening thread going about the various things that school taught us, that we later learned were false. Better to learn that those tidbits of “knowledge” were false, late than never at all. 

Check out another recent AskReddit thread that we ran, which focused on the most awkward questions students asked in sex ed.

Text - jonahvsthewhale • 19h That grades in elementary and middle school actually matter. I had a 45 in my 5th grade history class at one point, and I LOVED history. I just didn't like having to memorize the preamble to the constitution and other pointless things my school made us do. I now read and study history on my own and know far more history than the average person

Text - TurkeyBLTSandwich • 19h Two things: 1. Keep these papers they're important don't lose them (I ended up hoarding papers all the way from 1st grade to senior year of high school) 2. If you ever get a C or into a fight or cheat you'll never go to College and you'll be blacklisted from applying or attending any of them. I didnt really think of the impact these things had on me and suffice to say I feel like I'm worse off for it.

Text - llcucf80 • 19h Nutrition. When I started elementary school it was the four food groups, by high school it was the food pyramid, and by college it turned into myplate. You can't ever keep up and it constantly changed, so who knows what'll turn into next.

Text - hypo-osmotic • 19h The provinces and territories of Canada (I'm in the United States). We had to memorize them in middle school in the mid-00's, but our teacher didn't update any political border changes that happened after the fall of the Soviet Union, so I didn't know Nunavut exists until I happened to look at a map of Canada as an adult
