Wow! This makes a 9-to-4 school day sound very attractive. Is the summer vacation part of the REAL WORLD also, DPTX?
Perhaps you'd like to explain to us how/why this concept of summer vacation got started, in the first place.

Then, tell us how this effected the advancement of society, as apparently getting up too early in the morning, when you were a kid, had a dramatic effect on your own learning capabilities.

Are we still an agrarian society, DPTX?

If you are going to insult my learning capabilities, you can't make a mistake like not knowing the difference between "affect" and "effect."

How many times do I have to tell you that you must be very careful to not make your own ignorant errors when insulting someone?

I think you bring up a very good point.

It's absolutely amazing how good you think you are, as you pick out the typos and ignore the intent of the question put forth to you. Typically strategies of the left-loons at work.

Quit trying to do that... you're going to severely injure yourself.

Oh, that was a "typo." I don't know whether to giggle or chuckle.

All I'm asking you to do is to try and be more careful when you insult people. If you don't know the difference between "affect" and "effect," and you're calling someone stupid, then find another word that you do know how to use properly. Otherwise, your insults lose their terrifying force.

How many times do I have to explain this to you?

However, back to the topic. I asked you if we are still an agrarian society. Are the schoolchildren needed at home to bring in the crops?

If not, then according to your logic we should have 8-to-5 schooling all year round for the lazy adolescents.

Are you in favor of this proposal?

You pompous fool... do you really expect me to answer ANY of your questions, when you choose to ignore mine and only respond with questions, in an attempt to avoid looking dumber. BTW... that's an impossible feat for you, so feel free to answer my questions put forth.

I'm really not loving the prospect of getting in the middle of this topic, but I did want to clarify one thing.

Hez - Muslim students are allowed to excuse themselves from class and pray at the certain times of day that they do pray because they are allowed the religious freedom to do so...

DPTX - However, other students are not banned from praying. Most districts now have a moment of silence every morning after the pledge allowing students to do what they want with that moment of silence. I have MANY students in my elementary school class that bow their heads and pray during that time. I do as well. We just aren't allowed to lead them in prayer.

As I said, I was just wanting to offer some clarification on the matter.

So, do they let the Christian kids excuse themselves from class and congregate in a particular area, so they can pray? How about the satanists or other religions? If they don't believe in any religion, are they allowed to congregate and do nothing?

While my personal views may not be mainstream, I certainly understand the primary basis for the wording used by the founding fathers. The left-loons have misconstrued this beyond reason. By the same token, we are reminded of this on a regular basis, as we hear of kids that are ostracized for making reference to Christian views. This came to light, once again, not so long ago, when a girl was shut down at a commencement ceremony because she made such reference of her own religious beliefs. However, others, such as Muslims are given special consideration for theirs. Do they tell them that they can't make reference to Allah? No. This is ludicrous.

I'm not really sure about that DPTX. In elementary school, that is not something I have ever been confronted with in my classroom. I know in the high school they do have a Youth for Christ group that meets and they have prayer at the flag pole, but I am not sure of the answer to your other questions. My daughter stops and prays whenever she wants, for example, before a big test. She just bows her head at her desk and does it if she feels the need to...she has never been asked to not do it. That's the only example I can give from my experience. I do understand your point as well, though.

There's a legitimate reason for not allowing schools to favor one religion over another. The courts have clearly decided the constitutional issue.

But as a practical matter, would you really want someone like DPTX or me leading your child in prayer at school. Teachers have enough problems teaching the uncivilized little morons how to read and write. It's not their job to also perpetuate religious delusions.

However, it's quite apparent that you have taken the job of perpetuating your own delusions.

It's all right to have my own delusions. I just shouldn't be allowed to force your children to participate in my delusions.

What's so hard to understand about that?

Coming from a high school students perspective, I personally believe that if middle & high schools hrs were changed to 8:30-3:30, that you adults would see a massive improvement in your childs grades, attendence, and their everyday attitude. Teenagers bodies are constantly growing and changing. The two things a teeanger needs to have energy is rest & a healthy diet. Schools all over the U.S have already made a change in their lunches by serving healthier food rather than serving junk food. So why not make the change on school hours? And for transportation; 1) Middle and high schools would be starting the same time as grade schools. So if your child does not drive yet have them take the same transportation as your child in grade school. 2)If your kids rely on you to get them out of bed simply tell them, "No, you can set your alarm clock." Sooner or later your middle/ high schooler is going to need to learn how to wake themselves up in the am and to get ready for school. Also with a few extra hours of sleep it will be less of a challenge for your child to get out of bed. Plus you adults will be getting a few extra hours of sleep also.:) PS statistics show teens have more engery in the late after noons/ evenings other than in the mornings. Think about it.
Whatever
