Ok, maybe I'm out of touch. I mean it's been many a year since I was in school myself, and my kids have never been to PS. But this is freakin rediculous! The clip I attached is a public service announcement from Australia to promote staying in school. I think it's disgusting that when thinking of things that would inspire kids to learn, they had to equate not learning to being blown up! Yup you read that right, the kids that skip school in this clip are blown up.
WARNING: It's graphic. (And it ran on Regular Television in Australia! )
Quoting chotovec82: Uhm... WTF? Yea disgusting... If they couldn't read by those ages; it wasn't their fault it was the schools... omg...
OMG, you're right! I didn't even think of that. But, you're right, if they can't dad a simple warning sign by the time they are teens then they have bigger issues. I was so shocked at the premise - skip school and you'll die a horrible death - that I didn't even catch the reading thing!
