Ask a Stupid Question Day

When : September 28th, sometimes celebrated on the last school day of September.

Today is Ask a Stupid Question Day. It's your opportunity to speak up, and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. All those questions that you thought were too stupid or dumb to ask, have been piling up all year long. Today is the day to unload them. C'mon give it a try. Nobody will laugh......we hope.

This may be a stupid question, but I will ask it anyway...... Teachers say there is no such thing as a stupid question. Or, that no question is too stupid to ask. If this is true, then why do your classmates laugh when you ask a question? Yes, kids can be cruel. But, if you have a question, there's no better place to ask, than in the classroom.

Today's Quote: "Stupid is as stupid does". Forrest Gump

Movie of the Day: "Dumb and Dumber"

Other "Stupid" stuff:

Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.
This might sound stupid, but......
Do you think I'm stupid enough to fall for that (duh!)
Seen on a T-shirt "I'm with Stupid". Well, if that's true, how smart are you?
Origin of Ask a Stupid Question Day:
The roots of this special day goes back to the 1980's. At the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in ridicule.Teachers created this day on September 28, If it fell on a weekend, they would celebrate it on the last day of the month.

    Whenever a student asks a question in class, we always say "that's a good question". Unless they are trying to be funny, we usually don't get laughter. However, I only work with grade school children. It may be different in the higher grades. You are right though. Children can be cruel. I will share this with my co-workers today!
