How did you come to that conclusion? No third graders there to help you understand what you read?When luddites like yourself wish to address the problem by burying your head in the sand, which is to say not addressing it at all, we as a society lose.
I can't speak for every state but here in Massachusetts students are given a student handbook.
See page 9:
Enforce it. The first test kids should be given is a test on their responsibilities as students, they should have to pass it or take it again. Enforcement is what makes it work.
