A Conversation for Lies, Damned Lies, and Science Lessons

i,m a science teacher. i work with a history teacher who makes up history. If a pupil asks "where was trotsky born" she says, "kiev" randomly just to shut them up and not look stupid. If they ask the name of trotsky's wife, she answers, "ludmilla".
i think this type of "lies to children" is far more fun than simply watering down the truth. anyway, all modern truth comes down to maths, and history is a long way down the corridor from maths.
