Now it's vanishing in America, and people like Macbeth have been successfully brainwashed into believing it's somehow a sign of maturity and responsibility to do nothing but slave every waking moment you aren't traveling or filling your face with food. At this point, corrupted work culture has you by the balls, but you now take twisted pleasure in it.
Do you think a few more submissive robots is worth all the burnout? Do you want to pay teachers salary plus tons of overtime?
Not to mention pissing off that late is prime time for some school bus routes getting screwed over by rush hour.
Did you go to school in the Soviet Union? If you increase the school day, you can increase the amount of fulfilling courses that students wouldn't have access to otherwise. Those two extra hours don't have to be spent doing math. You can have an extra art or music class. Maybe a longer gym period. The school could also give the students an extra meal since families have trouble doing so.
I am sorry you grew up digging combat ditches at a Mormon compound.
