Charles Darwin As A Monkey



Students of the GCSE biology exams have been asked this question : explain why Darwin has been drawn as a monkey.
The question has caused an uproar of massive proportion. As a headmaster in an international baccalaureate (IB) school, I neither find the question offending or out of topic.

The question has IB written all over it, because IB is all about challenging you on your concepts as well as the need to think out of the box.
IB is about challenging you to put forward your argument in the most rationale manner.
For those of you , who would like to see how the mostly non IB Students have reacted, please click on the link below http://m.devonlive.com/students-baffled-by-bizarre-biology-gcse-exam-question/story-30338004-detail/story.html
