This thread isn’t about common myths and misinformation such as you would find in Lies My Teacher Told Me that lots of teachers erroneously teach. I’m thinking more about just one or two teachers being wrong.
When I was in high school (late 80’s to early 90’s) the topic of reparations for slavery briefly came up and someone mentioned that the Japanese got compensated for the internment that happened during WWII. The teacher said that when slavery happened, it was legal, but the internment wasn’t, that’s why the Japanese got compensation. I believed that right until last month when a thread on this board mentioned Korematsu v. United States. I never heard about it before and was shocked at the decision. It also totally invalidated what the teacher said.
Also, in grade or middle school I heard from two or three sources that the British weren’t allowed to criticize their own government. A few years ago I posted a question about it here and was told that it was total B.S.
So, do any of you have any isolated incidents of school misinformation?
