    Default junk books featuring junk food passing as readers in at least 1 Irish school

    Hat tip to boards on this one, there is a thread over there about a parent complaining that his child was given the following book to read in school. The book is shockingly bad on so many levels, printed handouts from the internet would be better.



    See what my son learnt in school today - boards.ie

    As was excellently pointed out by the documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock in his 2004 film "Supersize Me" - the entirety of which can be found on Youtube

    YouTube

    This film should be mandatory viewing in every school in the country.

    Look....Pravda nor TVTripe will not show it. And it definitely will not get on the curriculum.

    It is up to independent teachers like you wuth a conscience.

    And nowadays, that means that you might even get yourself into trouble.

    It is a disgrace.

    They should be learning how to work hard to pay taxes for Goldmine Sucks, and to serve in the EU's Imperial expansion.

    Super Size me was incredibly biased though, I would show it as a lesson in how not to do a documentary.
