An economics quiz at Kings Mountain High School asked students: “If Josh is trying to become a drug dealer, he is going to need some supplies like glassware to make his meth. Which of the four factors of production would glassware be?” The test also quizzes students about “starting an assassination business that specializes in murdering rednecks with minivans.”
Academic transparency is an appropriate antidote to this nonsense.
