Great Fall Cracks Egg

On this day, October 23, 2012, Humpty Diddley Dumpty can never be put back together again. After he fell off the great Wall of China, all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn’t put Humpty together again. They think he was sitting on The Great Wall of China to get away from all the cooks who wanted to eat him.

The school board is considering reorganizing the school week. They are suggesting that there be four school days rather than five. Each school day would then be two hours longer. Support your position for/against this issue.

I disagree with longer school days, you may get three days off, but if you do sports you will go from a ten hour day into an eleven and a half hour day. That leaves less time you can spend with your family and friends after school. Anyways, school is long enough, it takes up one third of your day, and adding two hours to school it would take up almost half of your day. Classes would also be longer making you have more homework and less time to do it. School is long enough as is. You’ll learn so much in one day you’ll forget a lot of what you learned.
