Longer school year does not justify weekly early dismissalsPosted: August 5, 2011
A longer school year does not justify early release days every week. In my previous post I reported that two school districts in the Phoenix area have a longer school year. However, these districts do not appear to be clearly committed to the value of extra time for students. Both the Balsz School District t and the Riverside Elementary School District dismiss students early every Wednesday.
This is absurd. Surely the administrators and teachers can figure out other ways of providing professional development for teachers.
