29. So, what are the kids supposed to do in their janitorial roles?
Move furniture?

You can get a work permit at 14 already. Don't need to change the child labor laws for that.

And most kids aren't big enough or strong enough to be of much use as school janitors before age 14.

Newt is a bloviating fool just like he was when he was in Congress.

Kids already help out in the classroom -- for free. Clean bulletin boards? Kids and teachers do that. Distribute books? Kids and teachers do that.

Janitors in schools do the jobs that take strength or judgment or an understanding of safety procedures.

I can't think of any task that school janitors do that a kid under 14 could do efficiently enough to be of use.
