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!

  2. They used the wrong word for shirt. "Chemise" refers to a button-down shirt, like a dress/formal shirt. The correct term for a short-sleeve would be "tee-shirt."

  3. Lol wtf is California’s school system different? I’m from New Jersey and I got all but English correct and I’m a junior in high school

  4. 9:00 What a stupid thing to say, really. his father is smarter than him definitely "you have a mother, that's not an excuse"

  5. What grade are most of these kids in? I never learned chemistry, but it was a high school subject for those who could do it.

  6. I would just like to thank television bc without ever reading anything related to the book or the actual book itself. I still knew it was of mice and men. 🙂

  7. "To be fare he just started highschool" tell me why im older and look the same since i came out the womb and he look like he is a senior

  8. The first equation for chemistry was wrong. You put “C(3)H(8)+O(THREE) —> CO(2)+H(2)O. The answer showed O(2). I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out the equation when you guys just wrote it wrong lol😂

  9. the fact that not a single woman got the health question right is kind of disturbing :/ surely the mothers should have known this considering they were pregnant and gave birth?? hats off to the girl who got it right though when her mum didn't lol

  10. When you asked the second question (2:54) I knew i was learning on another planet. At 3:58 I realized we were on the same planet.

  11. When she said "French" I was like "yes something I can do !" But for me the second was "vélo", yass I'm French and I didn't even get all the answers 😂

  12. Wait so when you asked about the chemical equation one of the reactants was ozone but when you revealed the answer it was suddenly dioxygen? That‘s not how balancing chemical equations works

  13. Lost my mind at the chemisty equation because it was wrong at the start, thought I did something wrong…
    History: First state of the USA? "I am too European for this crap"
    French: Got most of them!
    Biology(Health): I was yeaaah common! 'Female reproduction system' "OOhhh ez!…wait in English…oh crap (I am Dutch)" But still got them all right!

  14. that's not how i say bicycle in french ahah i say "vêlo" (i don't remember how to spell it ahah) but yeah im from portugal and we learn French in school

  15. I only got the English one right. I had to read that damn book twice in high school. The second time, I asked my teacher if I could listen to the band OM&M instead of reading the book 😂😂😂

  16. I wish those questions were better, really that wasn't health. More like biology, also French lmao. Spanish and Mandarin are taken more than French.

  17. Why are all the comments from like less than an hour ago when this was posted 3 days ago?? 😂
