“The Onion,” the satirical news site, can often times be mean-spirited and in bad taste. But sometimes it can sure be funny, too!

Here are my picks for The Best Education Articles From “The Onion.” Please let me know which ones I’ve missed:

These next three aren’t school related, but they’re still among my favorites:

Here are a couple of them:
