  1. When did a simple two-day holiday become a week off for our school kids? No wonder US is ranked so low in world educational standards!

      • I’ve heard that, Trevor, but Russia, China, Japan and even Estonia (!) are in the top ten. We are ranked #16. What are we not doing right?

        • Treating the teachers like overpriced babysitters, and then cutting monies for schools every time there’s a budget overhaul. What do you expect to happen when we tell our teachers, and our kids, that we don’t value them.

          • Why EVEN Estonia? Estonia has traditionally valued education very highly and we are proud of it. We also have long school holidays, so it cant be the problem. But Estonian schools do get pretty generous funding.
