As American students continue to suck in school, Obama thinks that extending the school year will somehow make our students smarter. Of course, this is the standard liberal solution to any problem – spend more money. And make no mistake - this proposal will cost more money. Don’t think for a moment that the NEA teachers will agree to extend the school year without an increase in pay.
Kids that want to learn in the country do very well compared to kids in Japan and China. An extended school year would not be of any advantage to these kids. And the kids that do poorly in school usually don’t give a shit. These are the kids that spend most of the day laughing, throwing things, screaming, etc. To think that extending the school year will somehow make these kids interested in academics is laughable.
