    I don't need to try again because life isn't the same for every single person, contrary to some beliefs. We have had plenty of students who have missed the school bus in my career who had to wait for a parent or relative leave work to come and pick them up. Believe it or not, plenty of people work passed 3:30. It's not so easy for some people.

    Then maybe they need to work harder to make life easier. Lack of responsibility is one of the biggest problems facing people today.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yeah, the typical simplistic response.

    One that actually works for people who are not lazy.

    Planning your life and budgeting your time is just too difficult, is it?

    Right, because now it's called laziness if people can't leave work by 3:30

    Sure, if people have the luxury of choosing what hours they work. Many need to follow a schedule.

    Then they can find another alternative. My kids used to walk to the public library and do their homework there while waiting to be picked up. They also have friends close to school where they can go. There are always possibilities. Try again.

    Perhaps they can take the time to organize with other parents to look for alternate solutions?? Is that so difficult?

    Very pessimistic.
    Due to the new BMOC. There is no plan to deal with the new BMOC. All political parties are now puppets of the BMOC. Consequently, reigning in the more egregious BMOC douchebaggery will be very difficult and costly.
