I am so thankful for all of the sensible comments to this ridiculous article. Now for my two cents — Casey your article completely ignores the needs of growing children. I understand a woman in her early twenties knows little about raising a family, but if you are going to advocate a mandate to lengthen school hours you should really do a little more research. And please stop playing the “poor working families” card to prove your point, it’s offensive to say the least.
