This is an awefully good quality thread. I learned a lot. Thank you.

c'mon guys getwithit! I had to listen to boring |-O operas played in class over and over and then had to analyse the theme music and structure; FFS and I never studied music!...it was to enrich my cultural values. (wtf!!) So picture this: teacher lets the dear little angels watch "Bold and Kak"; then they are to write an essay about the structure of the plot, who the bad guys are, who's frecking whom and what the moral of the story is...highly educational! And above all they can converse on the playgrounds about the morality of society in the US. In addition, they learn to speak American! (Probably a lot better than the English their teachers are able to speak!)

I have just marked some Grade 10 Geography exams. One of their modules is "People and their Organisations" cue some questions about UN, ANC etc... according to one of the girls ANC stands for Analytical National Council and Tokyo Sexwale is head of the United Nations.... while I really do think South Africa might need an Analytical National Council this is beyond depressing :( I'd say I blame the teacher but it's me!

My kids grew up without TV.... as in NONE whatsoever. Seems a bit unfair that the question is about something on TV and not something that can only be found in a book.

Awwww! I would've LOVED to answer questions like that back in school.

Ma: "Kids! Get outside, you can't watch TV all day!"
Me: "But I'm doing Homework!"

Answer to paper question: Stan, Kenny, Kyle, Homer, Marge, Bart. (Who defines "soapy" anyway? It's discrimination against my cultural preferences!)
Or when I was a little tyke: Stan, Kenny, Kyle, Brain, Pinky, Snowball.

see what I did there?
