Question 6Answer
My name is Jim McCallum. I'm a member of the West Virginia Board of Education. I'd like to divert just a little bit from the theme at hand but stay within the educational realm and ask you what your opinions are as to the extending of the school year here in the States in light of the fact that the students in Japan and most of the European countries go to school 20, 30, 40 or even more days per year than our students.
