Why?

Why the discussion of how to wrap up the year earlier?
Our education system is lagging behind other industrialized nations and you only have to look up a couple of countries to see the difference.
Our school year is 180 days.
But many others are running 220 days and have much longer school days.
What has happened to "us"? We used to cherish our education. It was something desirable and we worked hard at it. In Japan there's competition to get into colleges.
We have become lazy and complacent. We need to reinvigorate the education system, and to start, lets expand the school day to at least 8.5 to 9 hours, and the school year to 200 days, if not more.

Best Regards
Vog
