Spot on, Dr. Houchens!!!

I totally agree with your views in this article. Other schools can learn a lot from Gatton, but most schools have populations like The Science Academy of South Texas.

What does it take to be that innovative? Can we do it in Ky.? Who is going to take on the challenge of creating a more innovative high school, middle school, elementary school? God knows we need it.

Our school system does need a reform but who starts it? I think we should begin by changing hours for all schools to 9 - 5, with more time for each academic area, and Fridays for 'clubs', special programs, the Arts, teacher PD, etc. When will changes start to happen? Who will start it?

Lynda, I think your idea for shifting the time of the school day is a good place to start!
