Setting New Lows in Education

Louisiana is one of the states (Mississippi, Kentucky, West Virginia) that ranks at or near the bottom in the US on virtually everything that matters in having a good life — education, income, health, life expectancy, you name it.

As if to demonstrate why they deserve the low ranking, students this week talked about how the mathematical symbol for a square root resembles a gun. (Huh? Where was the teacher?) The conversation spiraled out of control and caused the police to be summoned and a student’s house to be searched.

If that’s a gun, then this is the Mona Lisa.

Really.

Did the cops know what the symbol was?

Thanks to Clarissa for pointing this out.
