“Monetizing” Homework the French Way
A new French website is going on line to “help” students suffering from math deficiency anemia.
Read the full story here. From the article:
“On faismesdevoirs.com (domyhomework.com), children will be able to buy answers to simple maths problems for 5 euros ($6), while a full end-of-year presentation complete with slides and speaking notes will cost 80 euros ($100).”
Later on, the website founder claims, “”We’re not just giving them the fish, we’re teaching them how to fish,” since they’ll have to understand how the answers will come notes and explanations and students must understand how the answers were reached to pass exams.
Having raised a passel–or should that be “hassle”?–of kids, I must say that I find his expectations somewhat optimistic.
