The experts that are used to support her argument are President Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan. The say that the typical school day is "outdated" and "inadequate for the demands of the 21st century."
The experts were Obama and Arne Duncan. They said that the "normal" school and also that schools should be all year round so that kids can get a better education.
The author says that both Obama and Arne Duncan had stated in earlier references that they think a traditional school year is "outdated and inadequate for the demands of the 21st century life." She specifically quotes Duncan for saying that he think school should be open almost every single day...no breaks.~Zoe
the experts that she says like year round school are her kids. they say that year round school is fun and that they don't even miss summer.
the person that wrote this is saying that Obama and the government had paid a lot of money for this year round school.
she uses President Obama and Arne Duncan and they both say schools like Trinidad are outdated and that there should be more year round schools
The people say that their kids like the year round school and that they think its better
She uses her kids and they say that they like it.
The experts that the author uses to supprot her argument were President Obama and Arne Duncan. They said "the traditional school day and school year outdated and inadequate for the demands of 21st-century life. Students in countries that routinely outscore the United States on international tests go to school for as many as 230 days each year, 50 more than kids typically attend here."
