    I guess she IS a little young to know about teacher’s unions.

    Considering the kids don’t “forget” in such a short period, why does that idea linger on?
    .
    After summer break, the first week is normally spent it getting back up to speed, but that is usually 2 to 3 months.

    If you didn’t have those three to four weeks making construction paper Santas you’d all be out on the streets being juvenile delinquents! So there.

    Actually, I suspect the teachers would just as happily have the time off. But the state funding formulas are based on butt-seat-hours, not actual learning, so we have school between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Yes, yes, it’s all the teachers’ fault. It doesn’t matter if the kids are dogging it, or if the parents don’t supervise the kids’ home study. Blame it all on the teachers.

    I knew there was a reason why we make paper chain links counting down to Christmas in November.

    I still have that song stuck in my head, but I can’t remember all the words so I end up singing the one from Animaniacs.

    News item – 300 more school hours added to 5 states to boost global student ratings. (and add union employees to fill time)
    .
    Haven’t they ever heard of Tokyo Cram Schools or tutors?
    .
    Parents pay to repair damage done to kid by inferior public education, grades shoot up, tests aced, and teen suicide rate skyrockets.

    (singing)
    Oh, we’re goin off to college,
    To gain a lot of knowledge,
    That we’ll never, ever, ever use again.

    p.s. PGlum: Short term memory goes to sleep. Data still misfiled in long term’s storage.

    How can they forget what they haven’t yet learned? They are too busy thinking about Christmas and getting time off is why.

    Cramming is a lousy way to learn. Doesn’t stick and not as good as taking your time and sleeping the night before.
