Do Parents Know What Their Teens Are Learning In School?


– I don’t think this is right. – I don’t think this is right either.
I don’t know why I’m guessing… – No, this is not right! – (gasps) Oh my God!
– Gross National Product! – That is what I had,
and I erased it! ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) Today we have
a very special episode of Do They Know It? – Okay.
– Okay. (laughs) – (FBE) Malcolm, would you say
that you know what your teen is learning in school?
– I think so. I think I have a pretty good idea. – He’s a teacher, so…
– Yeah. I’m an elementary music school,
music teacher, so yeah. – (FBE) So here’s how
this is going to work. We made a quiz
with seven of the most common subjects learned in high school. Sharon, you’re going to have
the opportunity to show Ryan that you still got it.
– Oh God, okay. – I just left school!
And then now I’m like here, and I’m like okay, I’m gonna have fun,
and no, you’re throwing more school at me! (laughs) – Jayka, this is what you call,
you never stop learning. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Here’s your first subject,
Chemistry. – (sighs) Okay.
– I’m already confused. – (FBE) Balance this equation. (Caleb laughs) – I absolutely have no idea. – I know like the basic concept
is that you’re supposed to take both sides and like
balance them out, by like changing around
the chemicals or whatever. But I don’t remember
how to do it. – Oh gosh, are you kidding me?
Okay. – Excuse me, I don’t know! (laughs) – Balance this equation?
Are you kidding me, okay. – Oh my God, I do not know
how to freakin’ do this. – Oh my Gosh! I have not been in school
for a long time. – Okay, well, I don’t even know
what balance the equation means. (both laugh) – When am I gonna use this
in real life? – Uh, I mean, I’m not
going into a job with chemicals, so probably never. – (FBE) Parents first,
what’s your answer? (both laugh) So?
– All I have is the equation. Staring at it with the hope
that something would come up in my head. – No, I was sure I nailed that. – I don’t know what balancing
the equation is. – No idea how to do this,
but I do remember order of operations, so you
probably have to apply that, right? – Ryan wins! (laughs) I have no idea. – Not if I get it wrong! – (FBE) Here is the answer. – Oh gosh, uh…
– Sorry? (laughs) – I put glucose. I thought that like equaled glucose,
or like sugar. – It’s a guess, okay? – I know, I took a wild guess. – (laughs) Not much better either. – That’s my son,
that’s my son! – This is why I went into art school. – Nah, I did not know it. I was just subtracting the stuff,
I thought it was alegbra. – Well, we both know
you’re not gonna be a chemist, and we both know
that I’m not a chemist. – Oh no. – So I think it’s okay
that we both got this one wrong. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) You guys ready
for the next subject? – I’m ready.
– Yep. Oh, history.
– Oh, oh! I’m okay at History. (laughs) – I don’t know,
I don’t know about myself. (laughs) We’ll see. – (FBE) What was the first U.S. state? – (sighs) Okay. – (laughs) I, I’m just gonna guess,
but I don’t, no, I know this is wrong. – Oh my gosh,
I know I know this! – Oh my God,
my AP U.S. History teacher, if he sees this, he’s gonna be
really disappointed in me. – I’m trying to figure out
if it was… – Oh! – I don’t think this is right!
– I don’t think this is right either. I don’t know why
I’m guessing this, but… – No, this is not right! – (FBE) Malcolm? No.
– [bleep] Alright. – Oh my gosh, why did I…
– What is, I don’t think that’s, that’s not even right.
– No? – Virginia. – I’d rather not even put an answer
and guess it, ’cause then I will
look even worse. – Is it Delaware?
– (FBE) Yes! – Ha!
– (FBE) That is the correct answer. – What? Not my guess. (laughs)
Whatever, it’s fine. – Pennsylvania! (laughs) – Somewhere in the east coast, okay? – I got Virginia too. (laughs) – I said Massachusetts, so…
– Really, that’s… – And I don’t know
if I spelled it right. – We gotta look at it this way,
we’re learning something. – (FBE) Ryan, did you get it?
– I got Massachusetts. – That would’ve been
really embarassing if I didn’t get it. – I’m taking World History. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Your next subject is English. – No pressure, just the whole world. – Okay, English.
I also did AP English classes. – I did well in English.
– So maybe I’ll be fine. – Okay, alright.
– I can spell. – (FBE) Name this novel. – Okay. The famous novel follows a couple
of very unlikely friends from two different ends
of the intellectual spectrum and their tragic fate
during the Great Depression. I don’t remember!
I think I read this. I honestly don’t know. – Oh, um, okay. – Oh. (laughs)
This one was really sad. Like there was actually
a kid in my class who cried when we read this. – This is so embarassing. – I really don’t want to make
a total fool of myself. I think…
– Don’t worry, we already have. It’s past that point. (laughs) – Oh, I think I know this.
Don’t you? – No, I know the story. I just don’t know
if I have the title right. – Don’t cheat.
– Grapes of Wrath. – (FBE) No. – I don’t even have anything,
I’m like blanking out. Oh my gosh. – Do not recall, sorry! (laughs) – I got nothing. – Tale of Two Cities?
– (FBE) No. – Eh.
– This was Of Mice and Men. – I didn’t, I never read
Of Mice and Men. I wrote nothing,
I had no idea. – Me either! (Caleb laughs)
– Oh. – The one thing I’ll get right. – He knew I had it wrong.
Did you get it? – I got it!
– Alright. – Didn’t read it,
and I definitely didn’t. – I’ve never read it.
– Oh, Lenny, come on! – I’ve never even heard of that.
I put To Kill A Mockingbird. – It’s because I’m old. – I was about to say something, and then I knew
I would get grounded for it. (Sharon laughs) ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Your next subject
is Economics. – Econ, I’m in Econ right now.
(laughs) – Alright.
– Okay. – Another business math related.
(laughs) Let’s go. – (FBE) What does GNP stand for? – (laughs) I’m gonna take a wild guess
because it sounds smart and nice. (both gasp) – Oh gosh, okay.
Please let me breathe. I knew I would do this. – Let you breathe, what am I doing? – Okay, I’m gonna go home
and study tonight. – She knows this.
I know she knows this. – (laughs) I may,
I may have it wrong. – And that is eating me alive. – (laughs) You know it?
– I do. – Gross net. I cannot think of the P,
oh, I don’t know. – I don’t know it, I’m just. (laughs) – Gross National Product?
– (FBE) That’s correct! – Thank you! – Gross National Product.
– (FBE) That’s correct. – Got one! – Gross National.
– (FBE) That is correct! – That’s correct, I got one!
Yes, yes! – (FBE) The answer? – (gasps) Oh my God!
– Gross National Product! – That is what I had,
and I erased it! – I’ve never, I’ve never
heard that in my life. – I got Global Net Profit? – That’s actually not bad.
That is a good guess. – Gross National Product! – I wrote that!
– Oh. – Alright. – We actually both have
common knowledge for once. – (FBE) Yay! – I have my confidence up,
’cause I have one point. – Whatever, it doesn’t matter.
(laughs) – (FBE) What is yours? – (laughs) Gross Net blank,
’cause I copied her! ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Next subject, French.
– What? Are you kidding me? – I didn’t take French!
– I took Spanish! – (FBE) Whoever gets the most correct
wins a point. – Okay. – (FBE) Are you guys ready? – I will get zero.
– (laughs) Let’s see, and this can’t be
a team sport, huh? (laughs) Okay.
– This is so embarassing. Are you copying me?
– No. – Ah! (laughs)
– Translate the following. What? – Who takes French in high school? What are you gonna use French, like… – I don’t know, see,
like this now. – This is bad too,
’cause I took French in second, third and fourth grade. – Did you take French in high school? – Not in high school.
In sixth grade, so… – So it’s been like
longer than I’m alive since then. – It’s been a while.
It’s been a while. – I wrote them in English. See if any of them come close. – I literally have nothing. This is, I’m not a French person. – Sorry people that speak French. Not my language! (laughs) – I’m hoping this is right for cat. – (FBE) Yes.
– Alright, and then how about bicycle? – (FBE) Yes, uh?
– Close enough? Bicyclette?
Oh, we’ll take the L out. Alright, is that better? – (FBE) Here are the answers. – Oh my God,
I was literally gonna write something like bicyclette. – Yeah, I know,
I would have not known. – I was gonna write something
just like that. – (laughs) No. – I got bicycle pretty close. – I only put the two
French words that I know, we and bonjor,
and then I guessed le dog. – Yeah, I spelled it wrong,
and I have one guess. I am really sorry
to my French teacher. – You tried pretty good
for I don’t know how long it’s been. – (FBE) Yeah.
– Yeah. – (FBE) Sixth grade!
– Oui. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (FBE) Final subject, Health. – Health, okay.
– Yes, maybe I’ll get this one. – Health, okay.
This is gonna be embarassing. – I know.
We already failed, honey. – (FBE) Assign the body parts
to their location. Get two correct to win a point. – Ooh.
– Female body, too? I barely know my own body! – I’m gay. (laughs) – That doesn’t excuse you,
you have a mother. – So I’ve like no interest
to find out, which is terrible to say,
but I’ll do my best. (laughs) – Five and six are different thngs? That’s weird, okay. – I swear I know this stuff.
I talk about it all the time. Okay, but anyways.
– Okay. – Now because I am so nervous,
I don’t know anything. – This goes out
to my wife Christine, I am so sorry.
(Caleb laughs) – (FBE) No.
– All of ’em!? – (FBE) (laughs) Yeah. – Are you serious?
– Okay, nurse. – (FBE) No. One, no.
And three, no. Alright. (laughs)
– Oh my God. All apologies. – I got seven for ovaries. And I got uh…
– Did you copy me? – Four for uterus,
and two for cervix. – You put eight at first. – (FBE) That’s absolutely correct.
All three. – 100% on that! – (FBE) You only needed
to label three at the top, but two of those are correct! – Oh, I didn’t read
the directions! – Always read the directions! Read the directions, mom!
– I know! – (FBE) So you have
two out of three correct, which means you do
get the point for this. – Wait, what was? Well, I think I got it wrong too.
– I think I got the cervix wrong. – (FBE) Here are your answers. – Yes! (laughs) – (FBE) Lana?
Yes! – I didn’t even
learn this from school. I learned it from television! – Oh, it’s so confusing
because of the pictures! – I got ovaries!
– I got ovaries. – (FBE) But unfortunately,
you needed at least two to get the point,
so no points for you. – No points for Ryan! – I’m sorry I don’t know
the female body, mother. – Well I got stuff wrong too though,
honey, that’s kind of embarassing. – Yeah, you don’t even know
your own body. – I do, I know my own body
really well. – Yeah, I got that too. – (FBE) Oh wow,
points for both of you! – Caught. – (FBE) You guys know
your female reproductive system. – Oh, is that what that is?
(Jackson laughs) – Oh my God, we’re so bad!
– Dang it, what? – This is so embarassing! – I am very glad
that I have graduated. (laughs) – In all fairness,
you just started ninth grade. – I guess I won’t be
too hard on you now, because even I can’t
answer those stuff. – Exactly!
