Keep the Public School Prisons Open LongerMonday, April 23, 2012
Peter Orszag, a former OMB Director and the current Vice Chairman of Global Banking at Citigroup (no revolving doors between Wall Street and Government!), has penned a piece about why children need more time away from their parents and more time in the education hoosegow.
It’s time for a change: Schools should remain open until 5 or 6 p.m. The result would be better-educated students and less-stressed parents.
After all, says Orszag, the children aren’t tasked enough with their minuscule 7-hour school day. Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.
