-- want to like miss one tax payers may not like it either starting next year several public school districts in five states.
Are going to be adding 300 more -- to -- school calendars.
Besides say cash federal money will be used to extend the days -- Connecticut to pay for those went.
-- -- is this actually improve education for our children.
Why -- you given this a -- yes.
Well there is no relationship -- between test scores and a lot of time spent in the classroom to classroom that in math that -- fine it's not -- anything in fact.
US students already spend more time in the classroom then kids in China.
In Finland in Korea and Japan and -- longer school days more spending only helps.
One constituency of course that's the teachers' unions -- the recipients of all this government spending if you really wanted to help the kids.
You privatize the education system it before that -- to eighteen -- eighties most of the school this country was actually home schooled and private that would give more choice.
Better outcome and lower cost for all.
And John and I -- do you agree do you think that the cost isn't worth energy think that they.
Education of the kids as -- I don't think there's a correlation a big job on his right here I don't honored I don't agree at the privatization of all -- -- twenty years ago we had one -- the best education systems in the world.
And we still have some great teachers and we still have some great schools the problem is as they assist all we are failing and we're falling down -- -- Other countries.
You look at the OECB index for falling back every single year it's not the amount of time that kids -- -- school.
It's what they are getting while they're there and we don't have the ability to merit based teachers we don't have the ability to merit base students and we will have real problem -- infrastructure of our education system.
That's a Christian on the other side of that -- -- -- the economics of all of us I mean we know that states are struggling to save that are trying to build automated it is Connecticut Colorado.
New York Tennessee Massachusetts are exactly exactly fiscally helping states.
And the nation right now and is is the right move to do next year.
It is the right move because there are lots of love foundation money and there is also up other forms of assistance that are making this possible but let's keep in mind why they're trying to do this.
States' budgets our school -- -- -- And they're cutting out arts education physical education.
Teachers are spending so much time teaching to standardized tests that they don't have dynamic curricula anymore and we also -- that during the summer.
When kids are out of school or drawing winner breaks there.
Extended losses of learning that put them further behind which makes.
The rest of school time not as productive this is a good idea it's going to be hard to implement.
But it's a good idea designed to meet some real challenges.
This is bananas on the -- of -- it is so crazy a paper I blocked kick your little.
Let's not forget this there are not robots -- breaks for -- reason can't focus this long thick.
Have -- get the merit pay in the system before you talk about keeping those teachers in classrooms.
Any longer than some of them want to be I am so fortunate my kids -- fantastic teachers there are so many rotten teachers out there though that are bring in this whole system down.
You don't want these kids in class gotten longer than they should be.
With the teachers that don't want to be there Wayne what do you make evolve -- I mean this is 69 extra hours that we're talking about that could be.
Those little mind soaking -- all that big information.
While never have I ever seen anything in the statistics it says the length of time criterion is equated to how bright you are -- how well you gonna do.
If you gonna do something to do that you -- you wanna separate people by merit if this guy can learn in half and -- what this guy we get takes three I was still learn.
Put him in a special place and take these that's what you do my -- my teacher in the Beverly Hills school system in California.
She teaches special kids she can tell you all about this.
-- you know John and I this -- -- yeah I mean.
Government domination of education it -- all these new opportunities -- actually ever being seen in a private -- so we can have some schools that would benefit kids -- be in school for one -- at the time others that would be more internship programs within the whole.
Field of education has not been developed.
Specifically because of government nomination John that's the systemic element here -- at risk.
That's -- the quality of education gone down in the cost is only gone up.
-- and Jon good things happen in the past when you have so we can be done with public OK all right coming up everyone's.
