I thought this was interesting, it is an article about President Obama's plan for education. The problem with the vast majority of children and education is the lack of parental involvment and they want to take the children out of the home longer! They don't think there is something wrong with the system, just that our children are not in it long enough, huh. Here is a snippet:
Obama also wants kids to spend more time in school, with longer school days, school weeks and school years — a position he admitted will make him less popular with his school-age daughters.
Children in South Korea spend a month longer in school every year than do kids in the U.S., where the antiquated school calendar comes from the days when many people farmed and kids were needed in the fields.
"I know longer school days and school years are not wildly popular ideas, not with Malia and Sasha," Obama said as the crowd laughed. "But the challenges of a new century demand more time in the classroom."
"If they can do that in South Korea, we can do it right here in the United States of America," Obama said.
