In an expanding and interdependent global economy, the importance of accurate education becomes a highlight of a successful life.

Inaccurate education can be one’s doom. 

Errors from teachers and assistants in the classroom will come back to hurt us in several ways, not the least of them embarrassment and loss of credibility in the workplace.. Some of these errors can hurt people emotionally and physically as well.

Teachers are being prepared better than ever to teach science in K-12, but we are hearing some astounding errors in the classroom! Has it happened to you or your children?

Look at the ongoing collection of errors that are not a comedy at:

Were there errors or myths in biology or other subjects you were taught?

See http://goo.gl/K6dQAa and feel free to add your own experiences.

In one instance of error, some of our American elementary school teachers said that the kiwi (bird) was extinct. It was not extinct then and it is is still living on Earth today.

Using a decades-outdated 1940s biology and health textbook, teachers went on to tells that all me and boys are missing the lowest rib on the left side. Also incorrect.

One of the worst modern education errors may come from questionable online courses, writers who allege health and medical credentials when they have none, and public reading of unreviewed biological literature on the Internet, or simply missing key phrases and punctuation in peer-reviewed literature. One error is being perpetrated on a low level in America and states that human beings have no frontal lobes until adolescence. Among medical scientists, neurologists, and the National Institutes of Health, hundreds of Medical Associations, and the body of research literature, it is well known that the brain’s frontal lobes form during gestation, in the womb.
