11-year-old girl accuses her teacher of a ‘war crime’ and Twitter is on her side.

Meet Mason Cross’ 11-year-old daughter, Ava.

She is a witty little middle school student, who does her history research.

Mason recently shared a photo of an assignment the school gave to her daughter. They asked her, “things my teacher(s) can do better.”

And her response was both hilarious and historically accurate.


She answered:

“Not use collective punishment as it is not fair on the many people who did nothing and under the 1949 Geneva Conventions it is a war crime.”

Now, this kid basically had the guts to challenge America’s education system, and it’s sense of “justice.” OF COURSE, GIVE HER THAT ICECREAM.

I agree with Ava. Collective (class-wide) punishment is just wrong. There are so many innocent kids paying for something they didn’t do. Not sure if it’s a war crime though…

However, the Twitterverse loves Ava and completely agrees with her:







She doesn’t deserve being grounded at all, and some people pointed that out:


To which her father replied:


He also said that Ava thinks her teacher is actually pretty “awesome,” other than her war crimes.


We hope Ava’s teacher would consider her opinion next time she wants to punish the class.
