Bill Maher’s New Rule: FIRE THE PARENTS!
When there are no books in the house, and there are no parents in the house, you know who raises the kids? That’s right, the television. Kids aren’t keeping up with their studies; they’re keeping up with the Kardashians. We’re allowing the television, as babysitter, to turn us into a nation of slutty idiots. By the way, one sign your 9-year-old may be watching too much One Tree Hill: if she has an imaginary friend with benefits.
It is too easy to say that all the problems that we have in education are based in bad parenting.
But it is a lot closer to the truth than it being the teacher’s fault.
Thank god, as I am writing this Avi is reading a book.
