Boston Weak

I guess this only concerns you if you are a parent, student, teacher or taxpayer. The “experts” have decided to fix education in Boston by…you guessed it….spending an additional $12.5 million (tax hike). In this case the money goes to the latest edufad of extending school days by forty minutes. If you are asking why this is bad I must warn you that there are facts ahead.

Finland is #1 in the world in education with, you guessed it, shorter school days and shorter school years. Well how do they do that? Read the article linked to below. Make sure not to miss the part where they begin formal education with an emphasis on character and mental toughness. It works and it costs next to nothing.
