Description

In Wisconsin, a teenager must take a 30 hour classroom course intended to help them become safer drivers. Using a hidden camera, WTMJ recorded the full three-week course offered at one commercial driving school in Milwaukee and found the kids in that class received only 17 hours of the required 30 hours of instruction. The rest of the time they were allowed to goof off, often playing with toy cars or paper airplanes while the instructor disappeared from the classroom altogether. Sometimes the students themselves were out of the classroom because of unauthorized breaks and early dismissals.
