    I see that some kids if they to do a response or some sort they don’t understand it then they don’t come to school because they will get into trouble but now if they watch a vidio they understand it much easier. I think what they’re trying to say is work isn’t just about work it’s about having a little fun or make it a little easier so they understand it better. What I think is going on is in that school they couldn’t understand what we could because they come from another country so it’s hard from them to learn so they made it so they could understand English better then start reading books that are English. I wonder if this can help with people’s education better then reading books? Will this be world wide?

    I think that kids don’t go to school because they don’t like read and doing hard work but if there’s a computer they will possibly came to school because they don’t have to read because you can go on a video and listen to the person reading. If you have a really hard homework you can go on YouTube and you have more people to help you so you don’t do it on your own and that’s what I think is going on and say. I see a bunch of 9th grader taking about what easy things to help you if you’re stuck on your work. It makes me wonder why they don’t have books to read and only the internet I think that can effect there reading I the Fuchu.
