I know some of you are teachers, ex-teachers or have children in school. I always thought Aussies had a knack for telling it like it is. This might be proof.

Beware the flashing message at the bottom. It's a google ad. Nothing to do with the video.

Thanks for posting Maggie, I hadn't seen this and had a really good laugh.

After enjoying the video, I checked snopes.com and learned this has been around since 2002 when it was said to be the answering machine at Pacific Palisades High School. In March 2009 a version was circulated with an MP3 recording and identified the institution as Maroochydore High School in Queensland, Australia and added the option regarding selecting another language. http://www.snopes.com/humor/iftrue/palisades.asp

Love it! The school system I taught in did not allow you to give a child a zero. At the end of the 9 weeks, any failing grades had to be changed to 50.
