The Onion published this satirical news story recently:
Here’s a snippet:
Basic math—which the child has blissfully yet to learn—clearly demonstrates that the number of years before he will be released from the horrifying prison of formal schooling, is more than twice the length of time he has yet existed. According to a conservative estimate of six hours of school five days a week for nine months of the year, Bolduc faces an estimated 14,400 hours trapped in an endless succession of nearly identical, suffocating classrooms.
Thoughts??? I gotta say I think there’s an awful lot of truth to this, fake news or not. At many schools and for many kids, anyway.
