Hey, teacher! Leave them kids alone

September 29, 2009

President Obama wants kids in school more hours per day, more days per year.

“We can no longer afford an academic calendar designed when America was a nation of farmers who needed their children at home plowing the land at the end of each day,” Obama said. “That calendar may have once made sense, but today, it puts us at a competitive disadvantage.”

Please excuse the “un-American” children at 4:22.
