What do you think?

I have been thinking about doing this for a while, adding a polling feature to 2¢ Worth.  Commenting is hard and time consuming, but taking a quick survey may be a better way to get people’s feelings about an issue.

A perfect issue came up this morning, with a link through EduTopia to this NYTimes article about schools and districts that are considering lengthening the school day in order to improve test scores.

Failing Schools See a Solution in Longer Day – New York Times:

States and school districts nationwide are moving to lengthen the day at struggling schools, spurred by grim test results suggesting that more than 10,000 schools are likely to be declared failing under federal law next year.

So, what do you think?  The survey widget to the right will likely remain there for about a week.  Please take the time to vote, yes or no, and check back every once in a while to see the results.
