Ok, so our esteemed Governor here in New Jersey (Chris Christie, in case you're unaware) has indicated he wants our fair state to consider longer school days and longer school years. Details of his proposal are not yet available (like who will pay for it) but I wonder - how many folks out there have a school year longer than 180 days and/or go into the summer months? Did you experience the change personally? What is your opinion about longer school days and possibly shortening "summer recess," or even, going to school year round? Thanks for your input!
