Longer School Days Needed To Boost Poor, White Children's Results, MPs Say

Longer School Days Needed To Boost Poor, White Children's Results, MPs Say

Commented Jun 19, 2014 at 14:21:21 in UK

“I am a Canadian English/Language Arts teacher so I cannot resist:

"The MPs said longer school days could help boost the results of poor white children by giving them somewhere to do their homework."

Then... shouldn't it technically be called schoolwork?

School is a great... probably THE greatest prescription for upward mobility and keeping folks out of jail but even it can only do so much. The single greatest factor on success in school is your postal code. Kids in poorer neighbourhoods the world over simply perform worse. Early intervention (preschool and reading programs) help but longer school days are not the solution.”

“Any publicity is good publicity right? I often wonder how much of this stuff is genuine... and how much contrived to sell more music. Both of these gals remind me in many ways of Madonna who often created controversy to promote her latest movie, coffee table book, tour... or whatever. Does anyone else think they know EXACTLY what they are doing?”

stciappelletto on Oct 4, 2013 at 09:25:44

“Miley knows exactly what she's doing, O'Connor probably lacks the insight.

There's a reason O'Connor has problems with relationships. A woman who shaves her head for 20 years because she doesn't want her music sold because of sexualization...whoa, she's got some major issues. She doesn't have issues, she has a subscription.

I think what's annoying her the most is that Miley took exactly the opposite approach, and worst of all seems to be enjoying herself, at least for the time being. O'Connor's stand-offish approach to everything hasn't made her happy at all. She pushes everything away.”

“Breasts are child feeding organs... not sex organs... or are you insinuating a woman with a double mastectomy can't have children? Can't have sex?

I suppose more correctly breasts are erogenous zones... but then again so are the neck, lips and skin. I suppose that is why there are burkas.”

HassanW on Aug 26, 2013 at 04:58:39

“Your use of logic is impeccable...have to hand it to you sir...you use what I would call politician logic...turning something on its head and excluding all other possibilities to make a point - no, a lady with a mastectomy can certainly be a wonderful mother and can also have a normal sexual life...because as I said before...that isn't the only sexual object and a breast feeding and motherhood have very little to do with each other.

As for lips and many other parts...yes that is why burkas exist, because beauty and feelings come from many things and this is why in certain cultures/religion burkas are the norm. For a wide range of reasons they are not in Canada and I'm not getting into the debate here as obviously some people have issue with common decency of covering chest but thank you for making my point - our culture has decided covering bottom is important for both males and females, covering tops for females, other cultures have gone as far as full body. I would take acceptance of cultural norms and laws as a basic part of being Canadian.”

“We are all sexual creatures. It is the way god designed us... but sunbathing on a nude beach or breastfeeding in public is not an invitation for sex consensual or not. The fact that some believe it is or that women need be fearful of this was what I thought was the sad commentary. I wasn't criticizing you or your beliefs. Sorry if my post came across that way. :)

Yeah... there will always be ogglers, voyeurs and exhibitionists but the majority of the nudists I have met and known have a great deal of respect for themselves and others and are themselves very respectable.”

“Some men would just love women exposed to the hilt unfortunately women have more respect for themselves than that. Some men don't also want to admit that women exposed has nothing to do with how beautiful they look rather it is a sexual kick off for them to put it mildly..However, in order to hide that sexual behavior that they enjoy it is much easier to say why shouldn't women expose all of that? it doesn't cause any harm, they look beautiful in their bodies so what is the big deal?...It is a big deal to most respectable women. ...and although it may be a sad commentary to you on human behavior women know it is the truth....”

“I remember when all three of my kids reached a certain age... I think around 3 or perhaps a little older maybe... they loved on a few occasions after their baths to make a beeline for the front door and into the front yard au natural. It happened with all three... and they laughed and laughed while I frantically chased them down and rushed them inside lol. For them they were perfectly comfortable. It was a little heartbreaking robbing them of that pleasure... haha.

Why do we grow to loath our bodies... to see the nude as only something associated with sex? Why should nudity make us uncomfortable?”

“Usually when one woman does it ...the other women get nervous because they feel that men will think that they are all like that....More worried about sexual attacks than anything else ...however both men and women should be covered up....”

“It is not!! Attractiveness is in the eye of the beholder perhaps. I love nudes... in paintings, magazines, on the beach... and I love breasts. Big ones, little ones, droopy ones, perky ones. Nipples that point right at you or off to the side. They are amazing. No two are like any other two. They are like snowflakes... ahh pretty little snowflakes gently fluttering down. You can't hate snowflakes can you? Or Bambi?

We have been trained since birth to reject our natural state... programmed to loath and hate our own bodies so we can buy more this and more that to make us more beautiful when we are all beautiful regardless. We are living, breathing miracles! There is nothing lewd or lascivious about nudity, only what people project... people's own perversions or insecurities about the naked form. People associate nudity with sex and sex is dirty right? Yet sex is a gift given to us by the Creator. We spend more time doing in the buff growing in mom's womb, bathing, skinny dipping for some, suntanning, sleeping going to the bathroom and yet sex and "unattractiveness" is what western culture has been taught to associate with nudity.

I thought it was a very humorous interview. I applaud this woman for having the courage to do it and to share it with us as well as the mayor who handled the interview so very well. We need more people like these in the world.”

“Years ago "Dear Abby" (am I dating myself?) was asked what she thought about nudity. The writer went on to talk about how awful it was.

Abby's response was "if God meant for us to go around naked we would have been born that way". I miss her.”

“The cleavage... shown off in a plunging neckline... amazing spheroid lady parts highlighted in a wonderful red skimpy bikini ... are about feeling attractive I have been told.

"Pretty" was the exact word I believe. Sadly more about women than it is about us men I am afraid. At least this is what has been explained very patiently in other discussions on the matter... so I believe it is my task... nay... my very duty to share this with you O brothers on the interwebs.

And yet... no. It just a chest they say. No different than his or mine... as they bounce playfully longing to be free...

Confusing... I know.

Ahh the power of the female breast over men. It is our kryptonite... our Achille's heel.

Shhh boys. Maybe if we keep hush hush about it they will not know just how much power they (women that is... not their boobs... quit compartmentalizing and objectifying damnit) wield.

One thing is certain however. We can only hope that they use those breasts for good... and not for eee-ville.”

“Sex organ... as in procreation... making babies. Only the penis and vagina are involved there.

Having said that breast are erogenous zones, hyper sensitive areas that when gently touched increase sexual arousal. Then again so are the mouth, neck, ears, scalp, torso in both men and women... and again these areas have nothing to do with creating, storing or delivering mini me's. Google "sex organs" if you don't believe me. :)”

“All drugs have benefits and negatives as you say. With any drugs consumed there are risks. Even Tylenol can hurt your liver if you use too much. I wasn't commenting on whether or not it should be legalized, whether it is safer than alcohol... or any of the other arguments posed... just on that one particular stat. I think it is misleading.

I wonder what the label reads on medical marijuana... the side effects. Certainly "Do not operate heavy machinery after taking" would be on there.”

“Probably one of the most misleading stats that is thrown out there. You are talking about overdoses. It is important to get the terms correct. How many of those alcohol deaths were overdoses... and how many were a result of impairment (eg... drinking and driving)?

You are right... there are no documented cases of cannabis overdose (I read somewhere you would have to smoke a joint as big as a telephone pole for that to happen... basically impossible)... but I don't think you can say the same about accidental deaths where pot was a contributing factor. Also smoking weed has the same respiratory and carcinogenic dangers as smoking cigarettes.”
