    'Nearly two-fifths of youngsters believe Mars is a type of chocolate bar (it is, isn't it?).'

    I'm worried about the three-fifths that said it wasn't itbt.

    'CORRECTION: The article originally said that there were nine planets in the solar system, which of course there aren't, following the demotion of Pluto to 'dwarf planet' status. We regret the error, and appreciate the irony. In our defense, we're still pretty upset over what the IAU did to Pluto.'

    Haha, the Metro, best free paper.

    He's only been in the job 6 months, give him chance. In 2 years time all the kids in Oxfordshire will know everything and it'll spread from there. Personally i reckon if he institutes beatings for misuse of an apostrophe he'll achieve this goal in half the time.

    In fairness, I've taught the solar system to thirteen kids for three hours.

    Idiots, just another bit of proof of how pathetic we've all become. Although who knows how old the kids were they might have been 5 year olds.

    Not really pissed off tbh. Just shocked at how little general knowledge children these days have.

    It's not really that shocking, unless I've missed it we don't know how old the kids are, when I was five I had nfi who Churchill was. Obviously if it's up to eight or nine then it becomes slightly worrying.

    Fair question for mine. How do you know everything had colour from the word go?
