You need 1.5 hours for reading, 1 hour for math, 1 hour for science & social studies and at least 45 min. for writing.

    But wait! There's more!

    Then you have to take into account the kids that leave class for special services like special ed, speech, occupational therapy, Title One, other therapy, etc. During that time many schools have a time when the teacher's job is to focus on certain aspects of subjects that need to be retaught. For instance, you might have a group of kids that still don't understand fractions. That's the time the teacher would take them aside and help them while the other kids are working on other things. At my school we're also required to do character education for 30 minutes once a week. Oh! How could I forget.... then there's the constant, on-going assessments of each individual child in reading, math and writing. These tests take FOR-E-VER to administer since it has to be done individually. And this is done every 7 days.

    Then you have the bathroom breaks, milk breaks, another recess (in some cases), special assemblies, intercom interruptions, etc. etc. etc.

    Many teachers I know barely have time to fit everything in everyday as it is. There HAS to be parent involvement in helping kids with non-academic areas. Schools cannot and should not do everything.

    Are you referring to elementary school? 1.5 hours for reading?

    You dont get it, the health savings from reducing the obesity in only a few people across their whole lives off-sets the cost of the food plate. Please respond with an unrelated inflammatory statement now.

    Yeah, that's not what he said. We're going to be bankrupted by obesity if we don't get this country turned around. Nothing to do with "if it saves one life." EVERYTHING to do with the avalanche we're facing.

    I think between your posts and your sig, it's pretty clear what your "undisclosed" actually is.

    that was funny, I'll give credit where it's due. But you're still missing the point.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Should we ever be able to prove the connection between intervention and outcome, of course.

    Its exactly what he said.....because its exactly the justification all liberals give for their hair brain programs........

    ........"If it saves one life".............

    So more Independency and less (D)ependency is the solution.........more self-responsibility/less government.

    As government grows....so do the hordes of fat liberal slobs.
