A tweet from the author Mason Cross of his daughter's school feedback form has been shared thousands of times.

Cross shared the photo on Thursday, and within hours it had been shared over 12,000 times and liked by more than 33,000.

The form asked his daughter what things her teacher(s) could do better:

Not use collective punishment as it is not fair on the many people who did nothing and under the 1949 Geava [sic] Conventions it is a war crime.

I mean, despite misspelling Geneva she knew that it's 'Conventions' plural. Which is impressive.

Cross followed up the tweet with an affirmation that other than this feedback, his daughter loved her teachers.

In response to sceptics, who thought he'd faked the image, Cross said:

Maybe this is a political point packaged in a viral way. Who cares if it's real? It speaks to a higher truth.

Maybe this little girl was at school to learn something, maybe we've all learned something.

indy100 has contacted Cross for further comment.
