Why hit the books when you could pay a smart kid $1000 a class to do your work for you?

To be fair, it's not just clueless parents who are to blame, but an educational system that is obviously failing on so many levels to give kids today a proper education... of course schools are fighting a loosing battle with kids who, like our friend here, just don't give a f**k. As someone who pays taxes that go towards funding education, I do happen to give a f**k.

You really need to chill, dude. No one is "hating".
Constructive criticism is a good thing, and suggestions are just that.
The rest is up to you to take or leave.
Cheers, Island Rick

I don't even know if the educators are to blame. I know a good number of them who have genuine concerns and an idealistic curriculum, but they have to jump so many hurdles. I've always been fascinated by Heinlein's position that social workers and child psychologists are the bane of social development; they prefer to enact positive feedback systems of child coddling rather than good old-fashioned disciplinary methods used by, for example, east Asian cultures, where parents aren't afraid to give their kids a good kick in the ass when necessary.

I go back to the Philippines quite often, where old-fashioned methods are used on the children on every level society, not just the parents. The peripheral family members, nanny(s), the tricycle driver, the teachers, and the clergy all have an active hand in rearing every child. It's fascinating how more disciplined Filipino children are compared to their American counterparts; this includes their Filipino-American counterparts. They may not be as intellectually advanced, as culturally sophisticated or as technically versed, but they tend to have greater awareness of social order, proper decorum, and self control.
