Francois Hollande doesn’t think it is fair that some kids get homework help from their parents while children who come from disadvantaged families don’t.
Instead, Hollande wants to hire more teachers without saying where the money will come from (but you know the answer is tax hikes).
He also wants to increase the length of the school week from four days to four-and-a-half days. Note that school days in France start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m.
If you were looking for further proof that Hollande was a socialist nutcase you have it.
Rather than focusing on the problem (parents not spending enough time with their kids), Hollande wants government to address the system, which in the mind of any socialist means more government intervention and spending to make sure nothing is "unfair".
Other Unfair Things
Here are some other things that are as least as "unfair" for the exact same reason that Hollande used in his proposal to ban homework.
Educational games like Scrabble
Why stop there? All kinds of things in life might be considered "unfair". Do the poor eat T-bone steaks? Go to movies as often? Should we ban those too?
Does everyone have an air conditioner who arguably needs one? If not, is the solution to ban them?
Nah. Hollande just wants to raise taxes so that everyone has the exact same stuff, same teachers, same cars, same food, same clothes, same movies.
