Porn-PostersAside from the fact that it’s obviously terrible that five-year-olds saw a good 20 seconds or so of pretty hard-core porn by the sounds of it, I came away from this Odd News story wondering what the hell the kids were doing watching a non-educational film in school anyway! Unless, of course, the Jonas Bros. are somehow educational? What, so the teacher was trying to show the five-year-olds the merit of the Disney Corp? Or maybe chastity? Or really terrible pseudo-rock music?

When I were a lass, the only films we got to watch at school were Wordy (which taught us to read), then later ‘biology’ videos (which I doubt was what the teacher had in mind with the porn) and maybe a fuzzy 70s BBC version of Romeo & Juliet if we were really lucky.

What the hell’s going on?!

    Nice comment, badgermadge. Now it is kinda weird if it is only respectable if people talk about “Big Brother & Co”.

    Talking about education, the average reading age of an adult in the UK is, according to a study, levelled between 13 and 15 years. Now, the equivallent is the 8th grade in the US.

    Is is all a result of simplification in its varies forms found in daily life? Is it a real educational issue? What could it possibly be? Or is it a combination and that people DO NOT WANT TO make any further progress? Is it an inexorable issue that turns people into zombies?
