'More teaching time'

As an educator, when faced with policy decisions, I always ask myself, "What's best for the students?"

The more instructional minutes I have with my class, the more I am able to teach them. If I worked in the Fresno Unified School District, knowing that our students lagged behind other districts in time spent with students, I would definitely want to give my students the advantage of more teaching time.

Larry Moore, Fresno Teachers Association president, hasn't a clue what is best for kids when he says that more instructional minutes isn't going to help.
