I under stand the Superintendant held her first of two meetings last night. The only feed back I got was that only a hand full showed up about a dozen or so. Anybody have any info about how it went?

SCATS: these are trick questions. specially the one about the Canary Islands in the Pacific. The ones in the Atlantic are named for dogs (the Latin word for dog is canaris)

That quiz is great. Less great are the real-world examples of spoon-fed answers. Last year one of my kids showed me a final exam question from their college introductory chemistry class (with lab). Prestigious school. The question was multiple choice, the task was to correctly identify the three regions of a phase chart (solid, liquid, gas). The three regions on the chart were labeled "S", "L", and "G", and the kids had to match them to their respective phases.
