Word On The Street

Do you agree with proposals to shorten the school year?

Jimmy French
Divorce Attorney
"Absolutely. I have two girls and I was getting worried that my summer camp bills weren't nearly high enough."

Dulce Hudson
"Of course. Many schools are way overcrowded and when prisons get that way, they shorten sentences. Aren't our students as important to us as our prisoners?"

Rose J. Wheeler
Restaurant Manager
"Well, in my day we got a full three months off for summer, but back then nobody made it to high school without being able to read a menu, either."

Jonathan Blake
Art Gallery Employee
"Anything that keeps those friggin' buses off the roads for a few extra days is OK by me."
