I had to worry about general literacy standards in my Grandfather's school based on him having written over half the entries! Wasn't even that tiny a school.

I was amused to read one child's version of where the placename Killester came from. Wildly inaccurate of course, but like something a child would come up with.


Most of what children relate is what adults have told them or indoctrinated into them, adults who should know better, but who probably heard the same nonsense when they were young.

I suspect that teachers submitted the projects of their pets, in the genuine belief that these brought most credit on the school.
