The D.E.W. prompt for November 10, 2010 is as follows:
Your city’s school board is worried that students are not receiving the proper education that they deserve. To change this, it wants to extend the school day by one full hour. Instead of an eight-hour school day, students would have to attend a nine-hour school day. The board believes this will allow students to be better educated. This change would impact students, teachers, parents, and the entire city.
Write a letter to the school board stating why you agree or disagree with this idea. Persuade the board to agree with your opinion.
