Moving on to another topic, did you hear about the four (or was it five?) states that have adopted the addition of 300 hours to the school year? Oh geez, what the hell? So many questions arose in my mind. I'm pretty sure our state is headed that way, our EOC scores were terrible last year and if things don't change quickly we will only be headed towards longer school days and a longer school year. Interesting how countries with high performing students actually have shorter school time. Hmmmm, are we headed towards the wrong direction? I don't have all of the answers, mostly I have questions. Why don't kids turn in their homework? Why don't they study for tests? Why, why, why? Yes, it starts at home and God only knows what these kids are going through at home. I just hope we find the answers soon. Perhaps a career change is in the horizon.
