    Well I wonder how if passed the kids will react? Will they be happy being in school another 15 hours per week. I think not.

    I bet up in heaven, there are future children whistling a sigh of relief that Willy Brown was old enough to be shooting blanks.

    3 hours only makes sense if it was essentially a homework club basically. If you finish your homework you can go play or read.

    It's always women that have no children that come up with this kind of crap.

    An extra 3 hours to indoctrinate children.

    Obviously there is a political calculation here......but, I'm having a hard time understanding what the advantage to this might be.

    6 days prior to the presidential election, and she thought THIS controversal bill was worthy of introduction in CA, sure to make national headlines.

    Yep. Just like year round school, free preschool, etc. Get the kids out of the house younger, longer, and all year. Mom and dad can work more hours and the commies can raise the kids.

    WTF? Three extra hours a day to do what? Most of the school day was a waste of time already. And are the teacher unions cool with working an extra 15 hours a week for straight time?

    My wife already worked 12+ hour days during regular school days. Now with Covid-19 she is working 16 hours easy. Yeah let’s add 3 more hours to the formal work day. **** pay diminishing benefits. Yeah that’s how you attract quality individuals.

    But then they don’t want quality folks. They just want idiots to recite the common core, critical race theory BS without question. Same as cops. They want to get rid of quality and replace with useful idiots.

    I would be hard pressed to believe that teacher's unions would let that happen.

    So, when will kids get to be kids? 8-10 hours for sleep (recommended), 10 hours for school, you know they all have something like soccer going on, homework, time for meals, family time, personal hygiene (poopin'), any sort of religious activities... Senator Harris, with all due respect, there are only 24 hours in a day.

    I believe kids need to be stupid kids and sometimes do stupid things, as they learn lessons that way. Look at the kids that were coddled all through their childhood, these are some of the same people now out "peacefully protesting" with police in the streets of Portland and Seattle and Atlanta, where store windows are smashed so the store can be looted, buildings burnt, police attacked and attempts on their lives are made by trying to lock them in their precincts and then setting fire to the building. These are some of the same young people getting arrested over and over, only to be let go with little to no punishment, so they can go out and do it again. These are the people that got "participation trophies" when they played t-ball where no one kept score.

    For ****'s sake, lady, let kids be kids. Give them the time to do it. Some schools are "year round", some with 6-day school weeks, and I remember being bored AF in class a lot during school, so making them stay longer is not going to go over well. I also bet their grades would reflect it. OFC, some schools are doing away with grades altogether now, since the amount of failing grades were disproportional to the race of the student, but I won't get into that here.

    So again - just let kids be kids, and they need time to do that.

    Who gives a crap what that crap trap spouts off. Just by some chance luck she would have been a street walker working in Chi-town, for the Hustler from 2008.

    Never thought i would see a former person who held that office talk so much and help another to get into the office now. ah wait crime family that's right keep it in the family and keep it going. A shame there is no more Thompson action like in the old days. giphy (2).gif If there still was they would all be gone by now.

    No kidding. They’ll be busy enough when they’re adults. I saw the importance of it in college, but that's a different dynamic. I hated homework as a kid.

    It was great that she did that.

    The school system here attempts to indoctrinate the kids to the liberal way. My kids come back tell how they hate Trump and are for Biden. I told them this... they are now Trump supporters-lol
