I have worked with alot of young people the past few years and I can tell you they do not take getting to work on time seriously. Yeah we all like to sleep in and make our own hours but if you train yourself to get up and go to bed at the same time everyday we all know that even on your day off you get up at the same time. When we look at the amount of time US students spend in school compared to other countries we have seriously shorter days and school year. Are the teachers in favor of coming in later and STAYING later? I am in favor of having a longer school year staying longer and starting earlier but that will never happen in my lifetime. In this state we cannot even agree on what to teach our kids so we can have some standardized and accurate testing results but lets worry about what time they will get there!
