I heard on the radio today that Obama wants to extend the school day for kids...is this true? I heard he says b/c the kids in this country are not as smart or learning as much as they should in comparison to kids around the world, therefore, the school days should be longer. What do you think...do you agree or disagree???
Just curious as to what ya'll think about this.

i work at a school that tried that already - longer school day, it was horrible, we say the brain can hold what the butt cant handle. we just need to make the lessons more meaningful, teaching more effective, i would be for shortening the day. i did that when i had a classroom to boost results, when they could prove to me that they knew what i was teaching that day, it was over, free time. we had accomplished the goal, we need to teach time management and how to focus, not just stick their lil butts in chairs longer - that does nothing productive!
