This is quite a contrast. While SP was bragging on the fact that GOP Tea-baggers in Washington State had cut funding for K-12 education. The economically-depressed City of Hartford is taking steps to better educate their young by lengthening the school year.http://www.courant.com/community/hartford/hc-hartford-early-...Literacy specialists and kindergartners inside Betances Early Reading Lab School worked until the 2:45 p.m. dismissal on a recent Friday afternoon. Students at the neighborhood school on Charter Oak Avenue began the day at 7:45 a.m. No naps.Superintendent Christina Kishimoto believes they need even more time.Starting this summer, Kishimoto wants all children entering kindergarten at the city's lowest-performing schools to have an 11-month school year. That means the tearful first day of class would be July 30.The kindergartners would remain in school through Aug. 17, and then return for the districtwide 2012-13 opening day on Aug. 28, according to plans recently outlined to the city school board. </snip>intercst
