More time

So, the Big O wants a longer school year? Let's clarify. President Obama (not Oprah), thinks that a today's society demands a longer school year. Apparently, we need to be more educated if we are to become socialapitalists (can I trademark that term?).
Here's my plan:
Quarter One--10 weeks
Support One--3 weeks
Quarter Two--10 weeks
Support Two--3 weeks
Quarter Three--10 weeks
Support Three--3 weeks
Quarter Four--10 weeks
Support Four--3 weeks
TOTAL: 52 Weeks

Students who don't master the material in a subject during the quarter must remain for 3 additional support weeks. Studens who master the material get three weeks off.
Heck, we could still keep many of the current days off and make this work.

So if your kid fails, you get free babysitting? Hmmmm

Interesting thought. I'm thinking more like, if your kid fails, he/she doesn't fall even further behind.
