Chicago Extends School Days

Chicago Schools Add 36 Minutes To The High School Day | Care2 Causes.

Just as I have proposed although the increases I advocate for here in New Jersey are more significant.

The small net increase of 36 minutes may have the virtue of not being long enough to warrant reopening negotiations with the teachers’ unions in Chicago.

The increases I propose, being much longer, will most likely require negotiating with the NJEA. It is a matter of existing labor laws, both state and federal.
