Posted 03/07/2014 03:10:44 EST
An extended learning day is fine if it is optional. I don't like the idea of the power of the state telling parents how their children's afternoons will be spent. There are plenty of good after school more »

Comment on: Walsh needs to step up the search for school superintendent - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/23/2014 01:10:36 EST
