The roots of this special day goes back to the 1980’s. At the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in ridicule. Teachers created this day on September 28, if it fell on a weekend, they would celebrate it on the last day of the month. 
Today is Ask a Stupid Question Day. It’s your opportunity to speak up and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. All those questions that you thought were too stupid or dumb to ask, have been piling up all year long. Today is the day to unload them. C’mon give it a try. Nobody will laugh…..we hope. 
This may be a stupid question, but I will ask it anyway…Teachers say there is no such thing as a stupid question. Or that no question is too stupid to ask. If this is true, then why do your classmates laugh when you ask a question? Yes, kids can be cruel. But if you have a question, there’s no better place to ask, than in the classroom.

Others “Stupid Stuff”:
  • Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer
  • This might sound stupid, but….
  • Do you think I’m stupid enough to gall for that (duh!)
  • Seen on a T-Shirt “I’m with Stupid.” Well if that’s true, how smart are you?
