Students stand in a school courtyard as they wait for the first day of classes to begin, in Mexico City, Monday, Aug. 19, 2013. Mexican children returned to classrooms Monday, and they were getting a quick lesson: Not just school kids make mistakes. Their brand new textbooks have the kinds of errors that they are supposed to be learning not to make: words written with a "c'' instead of an "s," too many commas, not enough accents and at least one city located in the wrong state.
