...and I realized it makes a mockery of child labour laws.
"Tonight, your homework is to vacuum your house." Awesome, no? And since the teachers already know how long it's going to take, either 'only a few minutes' or 'only a few hours' depending on the grade, they can even pay in advance! "You are also assigned to be paid $50." Who could argue with that?
I mean, sure, it's not gonna be as useless, degrading, or painful as 'real' homework, but it should be bad enough!
Can you think of other jobs to assign as homework? Do share.
