Workshy schoolchildren no longer rely on traditional excuses such as “the dog ate my homework”, prefering more modern variations including “my computer crashed”, according to a survey. A study of pupils and teachers found lines such as “I spilt my dinner on it” and “I dropped it on the way to school” are a thing of the past. Modern children are more likely to claim “I finished my homework but deleted it by accident”, “The internet was down” or “my printer broke”.
