A SCHOOLBOY’S COMPLAINT.
TO THE EDITOB,
Sir,—l have read in the Star the telegrams about the school strikes, but I think it is hardly fair to complain about doing any kind of home work. There is, however, a thing called an " exercise," which generally forms by far the greater part of the home lessons, and which consists of a sum, which we work out on our slates, then copy into an " exercise " book, and hand in the latter the following morning. If this were done away with, there would be no more school strikes, and I, for one, would not grumble at doing the rest of the home lessons.—l am, etc., A Scholar, Dunedin, October 13.
