Student: “Miss Emily, look! When I add 214 and 90, I get that the answer is still 214. But that’s not possible!”
Me: “You’re right. Not possible. So what do you think that means?”
Student (with a knowing smile): “There’s a typo on the test!”
And then I quit my job and never came back.

Well, you should have told the student why he/she’s wrong, right?
Yup. But I’m not allowed to during a state test. Which is why state tests are AWESOME.
