What are they trying to teach kids...

Saw an interesting article about a program called HIPSchools being used in some schools in New York. It allows for teachers to post information about students and homework on the internet for parents to be able to check. Here's a quote from the article, underlines mine:
"As a parent and a teacher it makes my life easy," she said. "With this program a parent can log in to see what homework (their student) has for the day." Mayers also said the flexibility of an online and a phone-based service means she can post homework assignments while driving and correspond with parents even while serving on jury duty.

I just thought it was funny that teachers may be posting homework while navigating rush hour traffic.
