One mum hilariously sums up the pressures of home schooling during the coronavirus shutdown


As Monty Phython once sang, always look on the bright side of life. We know it's hard at the moment but we think you are all in for a much needed treat. 

And here she is. 

If you've not yet seen the video going viral of the mum of four bemoaning distance learning, it's hard not to smile. We love teachers. We love schools. But we also love the way this mum tells both of them off and implores them to lower their expectations. Reporting on day two of distance learning she says: "Now children will find out how dumb we are. It's not right. Really. Am I supposed to do know how to do improper fractions? Teachers, you need to dial it down."
