"In All Seriousness", Arnie, They're Not Your Children

Ideologues talk.

“In all seriousness, I think schools should be open 12, 13, 14 hours a day, seven days a week, 11-12 months of the year,” Duncan said. “This is not just more of the same. There would be a whole variety of after-school programs. Obviously academics would be at the heart of that. But you top it off with dancing, art, drama, music, yearbook, robotics, activities for older siblings and parents, ESL classes.”

Serious citizens listen, and act accordingly.

In truly destitute areas or with truly at-risk kids, the boarding school approach may not be all bad. Keeps the kids away from abusive/neglectful/drug addict parents and from the gangs.

For the rest of us. Over my dead body Arnie!

We will care for you, all of you, all of the time. Trust us. Geez, since 1984 is long past, is this a glimpse at an Orwellian 2084?

They're not his kids. Yet. I'm sure some 2,000 page legislation is in the works, however.
