So in the news today there was a release about changes to the homework allocation system in our Catholic school board. Apparently teachers are now capped as to how much homework they can give students and are not permitted to assign any on long weekends or during holiday breaks. A maximum of an hour a night for junior high kids when I can probably guarantee you a large proportion of those kids spend more than an hour outside of school hours on Facebook, watching TV or doing other mindless crap. I think that is utterly retarded, what are you preparing a kid for by doing that? Sorry to say but Catholic kids aren’t going make it through university with that kind of “preparation”, I can only imagine them trying to juggle the reading alone in up to 5 classes a semester.

Good job, way to lead the future generation down a path of ill-preparedness.
