Writer Mason Cross recently shared a photo of his 11-year-old daughter's homework assignment where she answered the question: "things my teacher(s) can do better" with both brutal honesty and historical accuracy.
Props to this school, because that's a pretty brave thing to ask middle school students. And Cross' daughter, Ava, gave a brave response. She specifically went after her teacher's use of "collective" (class-wide) punishment. And she brought receipts. Historical receipts.
"Not use collective punishment as it is not fair on the many people who did nothing and under the 1949 Geneva Conventions it is a war crime," she wrote.
