links136: Ed Willy: Actually, trying to fix the circle of poverty and bad home life is much harder for the government to do. Government and schools alone cannot fix the bad thinking patterns that trap people in a cycle of shiat jobs and poor decisions.What, you think schools don't have any affect on thinking patterns?
links136: Will intelligence only be judged on repetition and memorization? Will we still force everyone to learn at the same speed even though we learn at different ones? Are people that are supposed to be learning trades left to die and join gangs like they always do?
Snarfangel: Parents in good homes will give their children interesting and educational things to do with their time
DarkSoulNoHope: Gdalescrboz: Sounds like a solution liberals would come up with. "If it's hard, dont do it."Conservative solution: Even if it's boring and tedious and might even due more harm than it does good, keep doing it that way because that's the way it is, so that's the way it always should be.
marchnrun4: * first one to post this. Where the hell did Weeners come from?
Erom: Wow, amazed that the attitude is anti-homework here. If I didn't have homework in school, I would have been absolutely worthless in college. Homework is a great character builder and teaches kids that life can suck sometimes.
Rich Cream: Isn't this along the lines of hobbling those who can run faster than others?
Abox: When I was real little and my brother had homework, I was jealous of the attention he got when he would spaz out over it. But when I finally had homework I thought it sucked. Forty years later I still think it sucks.
