You'd think a school could understand simple definitions.

Apparently, our children are in far more danger of growing up ignorant if they go to government-funded public schools than they are if they don't.

After all, this school doesn't understand the definition of the word "volunteer." How are they supposed to teach the children under their care?


  1. I can see this at a school in the Soviet Union but not in America.

    Interesting on the disparity to get parents to volunteer between schools with affluent parents and poor parents. I wonder if maybe the affluent parents know that anything worth having requires work on their part and those that are poor are waiting for someone else to do it?

  2. I don't know if that's it, or if the poor parents who likely work for minimum wage simply can't afford to miss even an hour of work.

  3. Volunteers: I guess the term defines it better than anything.

    Hell, I'm still trying to figure out why when I went to school with (maybe) a pencil and today's kids go to school with a back pack full of crap....... (of which they only need a pencil).

  4. HH, that could be it but I've found that those that make the most money, put in the longer hours.
