About the worst thing that could happen to any school.
I am so embarrassed that my school subscribes to this "news" show. Homeroom does not need to be twenty minutes long, and we certainly don't need this. If you don't have it, here it is in a nutshell. One to two minutes of real news, followed by two minutes of commercials, a filler news story, more commercials, and then either a "Pop Quiz" or a plug. That's the problem with CON(as I like to call it, note the acronym), there is too much advertising. Frequently, they even have a "guest anchor", who is just a celebrity plugging their latest CD, movie, etc. What bothers me the most is the teacher's attitudes towards. They almost seem to think it's sacrilege or some sort of mortal sin if you talk or ignore it. In fact, we've been threatened with detention for having the nerve to talk or ignore it in some way. I am sick of being figuratively being told to sit down and shut up so I can watch a TV program that tells me stuff I already know, and I'm sick of watching my classmates being told off for helping each other with homework, studying, or doing something that actually counts for a grade. When I am a parent, I will never send any of my children to a "Channel One School", if such a thing even exists by then.
