Our freedoms according to an 8 year old

Just had to share. My daughter brought home some of her schoolwork for me to look over. A test she had taken asked her to name two of our freedoms. She answered "the freedom of speech and the freedom of revolution." Of course the answer was technically wrong, but she will get no complaints from me.

and even if the school wants freedoms mentioned in the founding documents, the declaration of independence explicitly mentions the right and duty to overthrow a tyrannical government - revolution!

I just meant that the teacher

I just meant that the teacher marked it as wrong, but she lost some credibility when she marked the answer of "democracy" as right for the question "what type of government do we have?"

What?

they start with the children... You should call out the teacher and have her correct her mistake. Mark it correct and stop spreading lies about our democracy republic!
