    WASHINGTON – Students beware: The summer vacation you just enjoyed could be sharply curtailed if President Barack Obama gets his way.
    Obama says American kids spend too little time in school, putting them at a disadvantage with other students around the globe.

    You are confused. It is simply more time for him to indoctrinate the kids.

    More and more, quality education must start at home.

    Hey dolt, did you even read the article?

    The president, who has a sixth-grader and a third-grader, wants schools to add time to classes, to stay open late and to let kids in on weekends so they have a safe place to go.
    Huh? A safe place to go? What happened to HOME!!!!

    How much more will this cost?

    If I read this correctly, the Asian students have less school hours but score higher. The time is not the problem. The school programs and lack of parenting are the problems.

    Seems to me he's a little out of touch don't you think? Oh I forgot, all he has to do is print a few more trillion and presto, 10hr school days.

    Yeah, we need to level the playing field with China and Japan. Lets all teach our kids how to make crap cars and robot barking dogs

    I think it's a good idea. Parents schooling their own children isn't working. Parenting practices (or lack of them) are not going to change in our society, I'm sorry to say. I've been saying we need to extend the day and year for years now. I guess someone finally listened

    Please tell me why it's bad. Oh, and Obama is not indoctrinating your kids at school. Don't be ridiculous. It just so happens that most teachers in CA are liberals (amazing, I know). I've been told that I may have a difficult time getting a job in Montana because I'm from Montana and people don't want me preaching liberalism to their kids (LOL). So I don't think teachers are liberal in every state.

    Tommy, I'm sorry, but more education is not going to start at home. It just isn't going to happen. I totally agree with you, I wish it would. But that's a pipe dream. Personally, I like my schedule how it is. Working until 6 and coming home to grade papers isn't fun. Plus, I enjoy the vacations, but IMO, it's what's best for our country. I think it's a better investment than a lot of other gov't handouts that are going around.

    I feel like I'm doomed in this arguement because I'm on the same side as kittypoo. I'm hoping a few of you respect my opinion a little more than his and will pretend he didn't post so we can have an adult discussion LOL

    Flame away I can take it

    Well lets see:

    1. We have no money
    2. Kids need to spend MORE time with their parents, not less
    3. Why do we need to be on the same playing field as China & Japan, we live in the friggin USA, not some 3rd world country. If I wanted my kids to be like the Chinese, we'd move to Beijing.
    4. We have no money...oh I already said that

    Lets try one little step first. STOP standardized testing! Teachers no longer teach according to the ciriculum, they teach in order to pass the standardized tests in order to gain more income for their school and district. Both of my parents are principals at elementary schools and both agree that this will make the biggest difference. Both also agree that parents need to either care more about their kid, or stay the fock out of the schools business. Parents sue the schools because their kids are stupid, or misbehave. They are they way because the parents dont care. How about teach your kid something new everyday instead of letting them watch sponge bob as soon as they get home. We ARE falling behind many other countries. If we dont want Islam to become the predominant belief, than we better educate our kids, because they have already surpassed our educational standards in 1/2 of the islamic countries and now they are integrating into our society because they are smarter than us, yet we have the jobs available that pay well.

    Totally agree. I think year round is a good thing. Helps keep the little bastards out of trouble over summer too.
