A Chinese manager outsourced his 12-year-old daughter's homework to nine of his employees.

          The senior executive's plan was disclosed when one of his disgruntled workers told a local newspaper.

                               The worker, who gave his name as Mr Chen, said it took three  days to finish the work. "We stayed up late for two nights," he said.  "The girl was quite demanding. She only needed to do one of the four  options but insisted on doing them all, without getting involved herself  in any way."

          Students were asked to follow their parents to their home  towns and either draw a picture, create a video, take photographs or  write an essay about the changes over the past decades.

                       Mr Chen, a professional photographer, said he was in charge of taking the pictures.

          Other workers were drafted for the video and the essay, one  person had to upload the work on to the school website and the company  driver transported the team around town.

          The newspaper said the local primary school had cautioned the boss, who remained unnamed.

Haha doesn't surprise me, it will probably give some kids in Australia to try and do the same with their homework!

Loads of accounting and Law firms these days outsource a lot of the work to China/India so why not homework original.gif

Not to funny. I know a girl whose mother and older sister used to fight over who would do her homework, then they would see who got the better marks.
When she finally graduated from Yr12 I couldn't even bring myself to congratulate her.
