There I disagree. I think you hold your ground when the information is incorrect. If you shut up and let the "authority" keep giving wrong information, then the rest of the class suffers due to the incorrect information.But once you have made your point that you challenge the validity of the information, then you shut the hell up and take it up with the authority figure privately as to not challenge authority of the person, just the information disseminated.
How do you get from distance to volume? They are completely different concepts?BTW, anyone figure out where the teacher goofed? S/he was thinking volume (Gallon/Liter) not distance. Honest mistake. The bigger mistake was not immediately recognizing the error and apologizing for the human error!

I don't understand. Wouldn't his parents call him "Hey-sus" at home? If a kid is named Jose, I'm not gonna call him "Josey".Reminds me of teachers that refused to call Hispanic kids "Jesus" and insisted on pronouncing it "Hey-sus." I think someone actually took that to court. Talk about religious ignorance!
