“All right, kids, time for recess”! All of my elementary teachers said that, but, now, in middle school, I have not heard that once.

We sit down in a chair for six hours or even more in school and only have physical-education class once every other day.

To the Editor:

“My dog ate it.” “I had family issues.” Teachers, I bet you that every week at least one of your students comes into your class without their homework and they have an excuse for not doing it.

But why are you giving them homework in the first place?

To the Editor:

Public schools in America have appreciated budget gains for as long as a century. Throughout all these years, no other nation besides Switzerland spends more per pupil and no other nation spends as much on schooling.

Health problems. Obesity. Overweight.  Why can’t people just exercise or participate in gym 30 minutes each day?

To the Editor: 

Do you think that kids are getting up too early for school? Well, if so, then keep reading!

Studies show that when kids get up at 7 a.m., 66 percent of kids feel unhappy or depressed. I don’t think it is good to get up this early for school. It is affecting the way kids are learning.

Prizes include rounds of golf at Troy Country Club, The Edison Club, The Lazy Swan, Wiltwyck Country Club, Pinehaven CC, Hiland Country Club, Eagle Crest Golf Course, and Ballston Spa Country Club.

You only have one life. Do you want to spend it running from the police for drunk driving?

When I watch the news, all I see is drunk driving or someone died from drunk driving. For me, it was losing a family member.

To the Editor:

Special-needs kids aren’t different. They may seem different, but they’re not.

Special-needs kids can do many things. Just like us. They like to play games, go outside, and be with their friends and family.

To the Editor:

Saying you’re a computer genius because you can build one is like calling yourself a mathematician for being able to count to 10. Did you ever even think about building a computer? If so, did you get scared away because a computer is probably the biggest advance in technology?

To the Editor:

Cell phones are the best thing to teens ages 12 to 18. Research shows having cell phones is cool …It’s a way to be social with your friends and to talk to their parents if something’s wrong and they’re not there.
