Children are people now, not just potential on legs!
10 minutes is definately not enough time for lunch! School is meant to benefit the children not just get them out of thier parents way! At least for primary school, hours should not be extended, play is childrens work.

Thanks :D I'm doing pretty good. It may be that more parents would be opposed to longer school hours if they were'nt under financial pressure and employer pressure to work long hours. This would surely be moreso in a nation without much social welfare to fall back on. I do not understand women who fob off thier babies to strangers so they can go to work, stuff the mortgage, the kids are more important!

They also need to know what their options are if they need help. Role playing and excursions for practicing those skills would improve everything else for kids. When they have confidence in themselves, the whole world opens up to them!!! I wish they had put social/life skills as an option!!

3 week summer break--balance of time in school-- parents should be responsible and raise their children--don't expect the school system to be a substitute for parenting--- find time to spend with offspring and encourage them to achieve educational goals--Support teachers!
