C’mon. We all know the French are lazy. Really lazy. I mean they protest in the street when they threatened to increase the work week from like 4 hours to 4 hours and 7 minutes or something…
But I had no idea they were this lazy. Some French parents are actually protesting homework because in part it puts too much responsibility for their children learning on them. I am not making this up.
A group of French parents and teachers have called for a two-week boycott of homework in schools, saying it is useless, tiring and reinforces inequalities between children.
They say homework pushes the responsibility for learning on parents and causes rows between themselves and their children. And they conclude children would be better off reading a book.
“If the child hasn’t succeeded in doing the exercise at school, I don’t see how they’re going to succeed at home,” said Jean-Jacques Hazan, the president of the FCPE, the main French parents’ association, which represents parents and pupils in most of France’s educational establishments.
All you Frenchies repeat after me. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Doomed.
