After considering all the alternatives, we can see why the board chose an extended school day over the other options available. That doesn’t mean we like the idea any more than the parents likely do. We also doubt schools officials and teachers are excited about working late.
The point is this, school officials are doing what they have to do to be compliant with the law. If you don’t like the law — whether it be the laws requiring such high-pressure testing or mandatory instructional time — we hope you’ll take the fight up with those who make the laws and not those trying to follow them.
