Giovanni Mahone

“No, I would not like to stay in school longer because I don’t like school. I don’t like school because the teachers wreck my nerves.”

Daven Binion

“Yes, because I want to get my education. I would like a longer school day because I like school. I like to do my work, and my teacher gives us money if we get stuff right, and I want to get my education.”

Don J. Mahone

“Yes, because my teacher teach us and they’re nice, but in some other classrooms they are not.”

Anthony Mahone

“No, I would not like to stay in school longer because my teacher be hitting me. I don’t know why she hits me.”

Darcheria Woods

“I would not like to stay in school longer because the teachers don’t have things for us to do, and we have to stay in class like for a minute and we don’t have nothing to do, so I don’t think we should have longer school. It’s nothing wrong with learning, but if you don’t have nothing to do, then what’s the point of a longer school day?”

Kemarion Thompson

“No, because the teachers make us stay and they hit us. They make us stay and they put us in another classroom and say we’re not doing nothing, and they really don’t have nothing for us to do.”

Jasmine Johnson

“No, I would not like to stay in class longer because while we are in school now, with the time that we do have, we hardly have enough books to teach all of us. We don’t have music, or art class, and only have two preps and we don’t have nothing to do.”
