Patent brainwashing in elementary schools (???)

What are they teaching kids in schools today!

Alas! The terrible things they're teaching my children in schools these days, probably funded by Microsoft's OnMyWay program!

I went to visit my son's class today, and discovered that they had been submitting proposals for patents, their teachers clearly no fans of innovation.... :-)
