In varies threads over the years I have wrong about something because I was taught it in school. In most cases in was about historical stuff as history seem to be the subject most mis-taught. After numerous thread I learn my lesson for the most part and held off posting anything historical I learned as fact . After reading Howard Zinn's "A Peoples history of the United State" my annoyance with the history classes really peaked. Now I know I am not the only one that was mis taught and I am sure they are more things that as kids and young adults we were taught that were wrong or incorrect.
What have you been taught that you learned later was incorrect?
