Santa Rosa County cuts school day by 30 minutesPosted: August 26, 2011
Santa Rosa County, Florida, has cut the school day by 30 minutes for for students, according to Fox10tv.com.
“The teachers work the same hours. They just have more preparation time. And you give a good teacher more preparation time, and the lesson is that much better,” said Buddy Powell, Hobb’s Middle School principal.
This year the students are in school only 6 hours per day. If the teachers work the same hours, where is the money being saved? This is a step backwards. How long will it take for students to gain that half hour back in their schedules?
