    So young Americans are not allowed to drink alcohol until they turn 21, are not deemed able to make a decision whether or not to have sex until the age of 18, but child labour laws are stupid?

    Never mind that I strongly suspect Newt Gingrich has never been inside a school, if he thinks that students can do the jobs of janitors or cleaning personnel. There’s also the question what to do with elementary schools. Does Newt Gingrich want 8-year-olds to carry out repairs?
