    There area a whole lotta school districts and we have way more people than European countries do. Many people are too crunched for time to be able to spend even an hour a day reviewing their kids homework. Many people are ill equipped to do so.

    My wife and I are nurses and we used to work opposite shifts of each other with me at night so we could care for our daughter without having daycare (waaaaaaaaay to much money). I got up at the equivalent of 300AM every day to pick up my daughter from school, review her homework and cook her dinner. I did his for 4 years but now I work from home. It was literally killing me to do this but I was motivated. I had a CompSci degree and used to do workplace automation with paperless systems. Lots of people lost their jobs because of work I did, which is why I became a nurse. But that experience has also driven me to ensure my daughters education is the best I can do.

    Her test scores get averaged in with the rednecks kids' next door.
