Funny. I thought I’d have strong opinions about this but I don’t.
Schools operate on an ancient schedule. Who needs to go home to tend the fields after 3pm in 2019?
They also need more funding.
Yet, school sucks. Then again, some kids like it. My nephew, now 14, loves school for the socializing. He also doesn’t mind learning but he sees them as two entirely separate functions of school.
If it were me, I’d have kid and teen social centers with teachers available, scrap the whole “we have to teach them how to listen to their future bosses” thing. But that probably wouldn’t work so it’s good I’m not in charge of things.
So, no strong opinions from here.
