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.
"IT IS A WAR CRIME."
Ava's criticism was so brutal that her dad couldn't decide if he should "ground her or buy her ice cream."
Her letter has gone viral and literally everyone thinks she deserves ice cream.
This woman is concerned she will actually be grounded and is very against it:
But no worries, everyone, clearly dad is Team Ice Cream, too.
He also followed up with another tweet to clarify that Ava actually "thinks her teacher is awesome" (in spite of her war crimes).
Get this girl some ice cream. She's going to need lots of energy to lead us into the revolution.
