I have not ever thought school in Honduras was adequate. There are several reasons I think this and one of those is they don't go to school very many hours. Four and a half hours a day is not a very long school day. Then you subtract the time for recess and snack, it is down to a really short day.
Someone other than me, must have obviously thought the same thing. The kids will be supposedly going from 6:45 to 12:20 on Monday through Thursday. That is an hour and fifteen minutes earlier on the front end and twenty minutes earlier on the back end. Then on Friday, the hours will be 6:45 until 2:00. And, on Saturday from 8:00-10:00. Then extended hours during the week have not begun, but, tomorrow is the first day for Saturday school. No one at Casa de Esperanza is excited about getting up at 5:40 on Saturday morning. That would include me.
After two weeks of school, there have been no strikes. I think we can expect strikes to begin soon. In my opinion, Fridays and Saturdays are probably the day we will have the children at home. Unless the teachers get a raise for all these extra hours, I don't think they will work them. We will see.
But for tonight, the children are tucked snug in their beds.
