Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms
So I might be behind on news (I don't get any t.v.) but I just read that Pres. Obama wants longer school days! 8 hours isn't enough? I don't care what you thoughts are on our president more than 8 hours is just rediculous!! You know they would have homework on top of that too!! When would they eat, play, sleep, do chores? Then I sit back and say, I'm glad I homeschool!! Lol.

 I read the report. Not cool. My 17yr old aready comes home tiered, and with a lot of homework ontop of that.  Not only will the kids not have time for anything else, but what about the teachers. Every one will be eating dinner at 10pm, going to bed at 12am and only getting 5 or 6 hours sleep. I vote NO on this one.

yeah well here in our school district the highschool starts at 7:45 and gets out at 4:20

the jr. high starts at 7:45 and gets out at 4 pm

the elementary starts at 7:20 and gets out at 3:30

when my daughter was going to the highschool the bus didn't get her home until 5

and the stupid thing is they all get on the bus at 6:15 am even the ones that don't have to be at school till 8

That's crazy! They spend most of their waking hours there as it is!
