4 Day School Week, What a joke

While driving around today, I heard some interesting news on WTOP about how there are debates about shortening the national school week to only 4 days. You can read the article here.

Basically there are debates about reducing the national school week to 4 days due to rising engery cost.  In addition to shortening the week, they are talking about cutting extracuriculative activities such as sports and groups.

I have to say, this is a BAD BAD BAD idea.  First of all our children are not getting the best education due to many things and now we want to cut their education time???  Sure it may only be 40 days, but do the math, that is 320 hours that we our taking away from them to learn something new!! Don’t we think we should INCREASE there days or even extend the school day further?

Now on to my favorite part, they are thinking of cutting extra activites… First on the chopping block I’m sure are the arts!  Then all the other activies such as chem club and mathletics.  Hell, while we’re at it, cut student leaderships, that why when the kids grow up, they can run for congress and other elected offices and not know what they are doing and totally fuck up our medicade and social security.  Do you see where I am going with this??  But of course the last thing to go will be football.  We’ll need footballers to pay WAY TO MUCH money and then have it easy for the rest of thier life while not knowing how to add.  Sounds like a great society we are bringing up.  Is america jr still accepting immigrants?
