Mr. Ed, could you give us some actual examples of what makes this a good idea, rather than just indorsing it. It seems to me that this paper among many other far right leaning publications already say that teachers don't work enough and that students are failing because they aren't getting enough classroom time. Under these provisions, high schools students would be loosing a little over a week of educational classroom time, while the elementary grades would be loosing 4.3 weeks of classroom time. So again I ask, what are the benefits of this provision you indorse? I see none, nor no valid facts that it would work. How about gooberment stop telling educators how to educate when they can't even run the gooberment. Every proposal they have forced into education has been a complete failure. Hire some old basstard/beauches that are retired educators to advise the gooberments stupid arzes as to what they believe teachers/schools should be doing to improve schools.

How many "study halls", are there in a typical school day?

How many "study halls", will there be under the new formula and "educationally speaking", . . . "what", is a study hall?

If study halls are basically "dead-time", having no educational value, then, under the new formula, could changing study halls to actual educational time, actually shorten a school-year?

I like the hours approach, but why aren't there more hours in the school schedule? Those two hour delay days would be a thing of the past which has been the school districts way around the day rule in bad weather without needing to make up the time. Of course the school unions object - they always do to progress.
