Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

So right now I am watching FOX's newest reality show called "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader". I am not sure about this show. Part me loves this show but another part of me says I don’t like it. It’s a toss up.

But there is something I know for sure, and that is that the 5th grade textbooks they are using sure as hell did not come from Albuquerque Public Schools. There have been some questions that I am going, which 5th grade text book did that come out of? LOL.

Now Jeff Foxworthy as a host was the best choice they could make for this show. Now granted, I love Jeff Foxworthy period, but I do think he makes a very good host. I like that he has the freedom to roam around the stage.

Now what makes this show different from others is that they have real 5th graders in there answering the same questions as the contestants. Now I must say these are some smart kids, or I am just not that smart.

Now only in America can you have a show where you try and prove that you are smarter then a 5th grader. But after watching the 3 day premier of the show, I almost feel like I need to drop out of college and go enroll my self in elementary school.

RE: Are you smarter than a 5th grader
As a current APS sub and awaiting hire as an APS teacher, this is what fifth graders are being taught today. When I was in fifth grade in APS this was not what I was taught. NCLB has changed what fifth graders have to know. In my practicum (student teaching) I had to teach circumference and another student teacher had to teach about atomic structure. Fifth grade and other grades in elementary school are very different from what they were 15 years ago,
