Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said today that schools should be open six days a week, at least 11 months a year, to improve student performance.
"Go ahead and boo me," Duncan told about 400 middle and high school students at a public school in northeast Denver. "I fundamentally think that our school day is too short, our school week is too short and our school year is too short."
"You're competing for jobs with kids from India and China. I think schools should be open six, seven days a week; 11, 12 months a year," Duncan said. (full story here)
OK My Question is do you agree that our children starting at the age of five should be attending school 6 to 7 days a week for 11 to 12 months out of the year????
NO NO NO and NO! That's ridiculous! It's the quality of education that is needed not every waking moment of our children's life. We would never see our kids! What does that mean for those who home school? or go to Private schools? I am against this completely!
