Unless you live in one of the affected states — which from what I can see include Colorado, Oklahoma and Illinois — or are a compulsive news junkie as is I, you may not realize that this happening in the U.S. of A. and it is ALL due to money. That is beyond AMAZING.
Richest country in the World and schools no longer have money for a 5-day week?
Yes, yes, yes — I KNOW. I pay for it. Yes, school funding, by and large, is supposed to be local. No Federal interference. That stuff just confounds me even after 35-years here. IF anything in a Nation warrants Federal funding (at 100%) it has to be education.
This is so inane. How can responsible, elected officials permit this.
Isn’t education supposed to be one the highest priorities of a country after healthcare. Oooops! We don’t have that either.
I still think this is WRONG. Very wrong.
