Quite simply. Parents would have to start doing some parenting. It is the single biggest upside to the whole plan.

What percentage of parents, especially those on the lower socioeconomic scale but not always, would have the skill set to adequately homeschool their children in grades 11 and 12 math, English, science etc..many might even have difficulty homeschooling their children beyond a grade nine level. On this forum alone there’s a great number of people, myself included, that should never in a million years be given the responsibility to teach anyone English..
How many parents do you think are adequately prepared to teach little Johnny to dissect a frog while homeschooling a grade 8 biology lesson..how many parents have a fully equipped shops at home with lathes, drill presses, band saws, welders, CNC milling machines, car hoists etc so they can prepare their mechanically inclined child to become a trades person ?

What a great idea if you want to build a nation of socially isolated awkward introverts.

Cashiers are quite often running around taking multiple orders at once, bagging things, answering questions, and possibly doing other things. Is it really so wrong for one to pull out a calculator to make sure you get your exact change?

There's no way the typical parent is intelligent enough to home school kids and or police some kind of online learning curriculum. It simply wouldn't work. A lot of older people and parents who claim to know everything about everything can barely read.

I also think that a plan like that would end up with a huge percentage of canadian children being illiterate.



It would force parents to care a little for their children as opposed to lettting the state program the kids.


bad idea , to many crack head parents out there for this to be a good idea

I guess my main reason this being bad idea is it would just cause an already problem grow much faster, antisocial behaviour.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Correcting folks on their typos and spelling is often indicator of poor toilet training. And BTW, in your 3rd example, the use of the phrase "in the stead of cash" is perfectly acceptable english. An educated person would have known that...

Secondly, school is not just about teaching "the three r's". Children interact with eachother, learn social skills, meet people and make bonds.

Thirdly, and you're probably not aware of this, but most modern families involve two working parents. This means that you would either need to have a large number of people quit their jobs to stay home to look after their kids, or have a massive number of people scrambling for daycare which is already exorbitantly expensive.


Agree.

Maybe we could do away with the Legislature , and Parliament instead. Not sure how interrupting people , pounding your hand on a table , and generally acting like an *bleep* would work online though.

So we can't rely on parents to raise kids and make sure they don't have access to firearms and bring guns to school, but we can rely on them to school and educate their kids to ensure they become a positive part of society.

IMO we need the teachers and we need the school system, but what we also need is parents to also spend time practicing what the teachers have taught with their children.

The problem with parents teaching their children is that will teach them all their bad habits too.

The average parent has been poorly educated and you think it's a good idea for them to teach their children? :200:

Do that for a couple of generations and we will be lucky if our society can talk let alone count past 20!

I am not suggesting we shoot all the educators. Just move it online. Weed out all the union brass. Etc.
