xtnyoda, on July 28th, reported on our new Education Secretaries desire to have our children in school for around 12 months a year...

Now the President... less than 2 months later... starts to move in lock step with what the Secretary wants.

Obama presses for longer school years

WASHINGTON – Barely into the new school year, President Barack Obama issued a tough-love message to students and teachers on Monday: Their year in the classroom should be longer, and poorly performing teachers should get out....

... U.S. schools through high school offer an average of 180 instruction days per year, according to the Education Commission of the States, compared to an average of 197 days for lower grades and 196 days for upper grades in countries with the best student achievement levels... "That month makes a difference," the president said.....

It does make a difference who gets appointed to these offices. And rest assured that each and every one is appointed for a reason.

This administration wants our children in the government classrooms... out of their homes... so the government can... teach... them.

Consider and ponder.

xtnyoda, shalomed
