A young student in Scotland has boldly accused her teacher of committing a war crime, citing the Geneva Convention in a school survey.

Author Mason Cross shared his daughter's thoughts on Twitter, saying "My daughter actually submitted this feedback at school. Not sure if I should ground her or buy her ice cream."

The photo shows a survey asking: "Things my teacher(s) can do better."

Mr Cross' 11-year-old daughter replies: "Not use collective punishment as it is not fair on the many people who did nothing and under the 1949 Geneva Convention it is a war crime."

Responses to the tweet were roundly in agreement - the young Miss Cross deserves a lot of icecream.

One commenter even suggested crowdfunding for the young outspoken student to have icecream for a year.

"I should clarify that she thinks her teacher is awesome," Mr Cross said. "It's just this aspect of the educational justice system she has an issue with."

In the most recent tweet, Mr Cross said: "The people have spoken," with a photo of his daughter holding two ice creams.
