SCOTTISH TEENS fed on a diet of Wikipedia and deep fried Mars Bars are failing exams according to the Scottish Parent Teacher Council (SPTC).
The SPTC said that kids are looking up information on Wackypedia that has been cobbled together by self-appointed experts, or those with faked educational degrees, and thinking it is completely true.
When the poor kids cheat and try to palm the work off as their own, they are finding that it is inaccurate or deliberately misleading.
Standard Grade pass rates were down for the first time in four years last year and the SPTC wants kids to be shown how to use internet appropriately for additional research purposes.
Eleanor Coner, the SPTC's information officer said that the kids of today knew how to use a computer, but were rubbish at researching.
Wackypedia is littered with opinion and inaccurate information which could be taken as fact, she said, but offered no citation.
Ronnie Smith, the general secretary of the Educational Institute of Scotland told the Scotsman that schools needed to make sure youngsters don't take what they read online as fact.
They also start believing that there is no such thing as the Everywhere Girl, or Mike Mageek. µ
