The Florida Department of Education is requiring that
students at Bullock, Daughtry, Oneco, Orange, Palmetto and Samoset stay an
extra hour every day for a reading class. Students with a score of 5 or more in
reading will be exempt from taking the extra class, according to an article
in The Bradenton Herald.
Deputy Superintendent Diana Green told a Bradenton Herald News reporter that the hour will most likely be tagged on to the end of the day, meaning that the children will be at school until around 4 p.m.
The mandatory scheduling could cause a mass of other struggles such as bus scheduling conflicts, additional teacher compensation and transportation burdens for parents.
