A few months ago, there was a short thread here about how “homework expert” Harris Cooper thinks kids should be working six to nine hours every day on school work. I commented:
Now that everyone seems to think that we need to use the kids to maintain our “competitiveness in the global marketplace,” and that we need to make them work more and more hours to achieve that goal, why don't we just go ahead and repeal the child labor laws? What exactly do people think the reason for those laws is, anyway?
It turns out that I should be more careful about what I sarcastically suggest.
