Campaign: Longer School Day

Thank you

Many thanks to Mr. Emanuel and Mr. Brizard for making education in Chicago a priority.

I would like to see the following:

-more specialized education

-tech classes

-musical instruments

-specialized tutoring

-foreign language

- core classes (math, Lang arts/reading, science, social studies) lengthened with emphasis on forward movement instead of homework review

-recess and any necessary breaks reasonably needed.

 

I would like to add that needs vary school to school and implementation should be individual. With all due respect to teachers, our local and global economy will only allow a finite monetary reward. Please help us create a stimulating and progressive education for our kids.

Campaign: Longer School Day

Longer School Day

I really think the longer school day would really benefit the children in the Chicago Public Schools, but the approach needs to be centered and geared towards the children. I don't believe additional classes or courses need to be added to the school day, but I feel some courses should be extended to lengthen the school day to meet the new hours.

 

What I mean by really benefiting the children in schools is targeting areas that we know need to be targeted. Reading, Writing, Math and Science are those critical areas, specifically targeting Reading (comprehension/critical thinking) and Writing.
