I have one. You have one. My colleagues have them. Your colleagues have them. Your students have them too. Sometimes they are strong. Sometimes they’re not. Some folks get right in your face with theirs. Some folks sit on the fence with theirs. What’s great about this thing is there isn’t a right one and there isn’t a wrong one. Yes sirree, I talking about an opinion—something Merriam-Webster’s defines as “a belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge.”
Now that we’ve established that we each have opinions, it’s time to share one! Will a longer school year help or hurt US students? Feel free to add in some persuasive details if you like!
