Website sells homework answers

"YOU can't do it? We're here to help," says the homepage of a new French Website where children can pay older students to do homework for them.

On (, children will be able to buy answers to math problems for 5 euros (US$6), while a full end-of-year presentation, complete with slides and speaking notes, will cost 80 euros.

The Website goes live this morning, founder Stephane Boukris told Reuters.

"I realized there was a gap in the market. Add to that a dose of insolence, a zest of arrogance and the Internet, and you have °?," he said.

Schoolteachers reacted with outrage.

"It is shocking. It defeats the purpose of education, which is that the pupils need to learn for themselves how to do the work," said Agathe Field, an English teacher at a secondary school in a suburb of Paris. "It turns them into consumers. The message is that for the right price you can get the results you want."
