The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) survey of almost 1,000 students in grades six and 10 found widespread misconceptions about food processing and farming.

An overwhelming majority knew where potato chips and coffee came from but almost 20 percent of the younger age group — aged between 10 and 12 years — thought pasta came from animals and scrambled eggs from plants.

Some 75 percent said cotton socks were an animal product and 27 percent believed yoghurt was derived from plants.

Sounds like a deceptive article. What were the questions? What were the answers? How were they asked?


I'm always skeptical of "studies."

Considering how hard it is to become an Australian citizen I think we're okay.
