My wife gets five “papers” online and they all run the same USA Today articles.
Wow, puts a scale onto “Big Box Store”.
I never saw a “great temp” hired. They are too valuable. So called permanent applications are a dime a dozen. They get cycled; but never lose a great temp.
… and got her point across.
I spent 53 years in that system and agree with most of what you say. I advocated a 5-day work week for staff with Wednesday being reserved for “field trips”, student makeup/council time, and staff meetings. M-T was CLASS TIME as was Thursday and Friday. Max of one week holiday in the year. Prime objection was cost of air conditioning; and that led to the shift we see today.
Pushing into spring was denied by all since attention died as the weather was improving. Other activities were replacing farming. By August, bodies has adjusted, students were getting “bored” and missed friends. Polls showed that they were ready for another change. Simple as that.
OK, third try. There must be a limit to a comment length here. I’ll send a reason for the change. If you get it let me know and I’ll give the reason for the choice.
States increased the days of classes in session. Administrations added days for in-service, conferences and work days. Parents requested extended holiday breaks for ski trips and Disney visits. That became more than Labor Day to Memorial Day. You either started in August or finished up by July 4th.
I might be out of room … over
Other than all the “contract hours” my neighbor put in that year, I only know of two actual outcomes:
A friend spent >10k on provisions and the NBC News on 1-1-2000 showed the date as being January 1, 19100. I guess all those IT dollars got spent on the major corporations.
I actually know the answer to that; but it takes more than a couple lines to explain. Let me know if you’re interested.
Maybe this is why I’ve always confused “giant” and “dwarf”.
Well, I think I read somewhere it’s at least “four more to go”.
