3 hours less to chill with friends after school? Ouch!

Interesting article here on Obama’s desire to add hours to the school day.

One issue that’s not addressed here is how this would impact school sports. When I was in high school, we finished school around 2:30 and then had wrestling practice (in winter anyway) until 5:30. If we had finished school at 3:30, would wrestling have gone to 6:30?

And based on this LOL quote it seems like we’re talking about more than one hour:

“I was like, `Wow, are you serious?'” she said. “That’s three more hours I won’t be able to chill with my friends after school.”

Her school is part of a 3-year-old state initiative to add 300 hours of school time in nearly two dozen schools.
