Response to Renew Deal (Reply #4)

6. Yeah.

Math is a biggie.

Language instruction, too. Whether German for English-speakers or English for English-language learners.

And let's not forget a lot of disadvantaged kids where a lot of phonological and vocabulary development happens in the classroom, not at home.

That's for all kids, those subjects.

Then there are the kids who don't engage at school. They already tend to fall behind, and that's with showing up at school and being nudged. Now they're at home, often ignored, and they're not learning anything. It's not that they're trying and can't--they're happy not to be bothered with all that school shit when they could be doing "real" things--sports, video games, drugs, sex, or just hanging and talking about the first 4. Or even going to work and bringing home the big bucks.
