ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I brought my chair to the library because this is where some kids do their homework.  Well apparently the president of France feels their pain.

He wants to ban homework.  No joke.  The French president feels homework isn't fair.  He says some kids get too much help from their parents.  So he feels homework should be done at school, not home.

It would be like telling cub scouts they have to build their pinewood derby car during den meetings so the one kid whose dad is an aeronautical engineer doesn't win every year.

While it sounds like a good idea I'm glad nobody here is proposing it.

Learning should not be limited to the classroom.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
