Private: Lies Perpetrated by Public Education

Today’s McSweeney’s is very funny. Michael Northrop shares “The Lies Perpetrated On Me By Public Education.” My favourite is the one for Sixth Grade:

The Lie: You may begin to undergo some changes. It’s nothing to be alarmed about.

The Truth: Becky has her period during math class. She runs crying from the room. Weeks later, your voice begins to crack, forever ruining your pitch-perfect Yoda imitation.
