Good Seed Falling on Stony Ground.

I just watched a YouTube video on ‘Funny Test Answers.’ As the title suggests, it was a catalogue of funny answers given by kids on school test papers, and I think my favourite was:

Q: If you were living at the same time as Abraham Lincoln, what would you say to him?

A: Never, ever, watch a play.

Some of the answers were quite astonishing examples of lateral and original thinking, and it made me wonder:

Do some of the most brilliantly minded kids consistently get big fat zeros in their tests, and so never make the grade because the system simply doesn’t know how to channel their brilliance?
