oops 2 years, 4 months ago on DCSS does about-face on early dismissal

Imagine that teachers WANT TO TEACH!!! That is the reality. Academic time has already been cut by three days due to furloughs. Extra workshops taking teachers out of the classroom are abundant. Classroom time is interrupted for unimportant announcements and other issues unrelated to teaching.. We need consistent, uninterrupted instruction to provide a strong education for our students. Saying "It's all about the children" has become an empty mantra. Give teachers a chance to do what they know is best for the children..to be "all about the children's education!!!"
