So how much time and money did this little demonstration take away from teaching our future generation the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic?

I am so glad to see that our children are getting a chance to see that life does occur and has meaning beyond the classroom. As a parent, and the spouse of an English teacher, I see the absolute reuirement to show our next generation that there is more to life on the planet than the three Rs. When the only kids in school were those who had money, or a history of acacemic succcess (and were boys for the most part) we could focus on teaching basic skills only. There is more to life than standardized tests, and private foundation grants that encourage teachers to stay informed and interested in teaching are more than "worth" a few minutes of class time.

The 3r's should come first. Before the glorification of teachers. There is a lot of talk about students dropping out who can not read and write.

I have your student for 47 minutes a day, 180 days a year--how long are they at home, with a parent?
