Talking to my mom about Esperanza in DR - which runs its program in that 1/2 day that children are not in school - I was interested to hear that there are, in that area, too many students to have them all be at school at once. Obviously, the solution is more schools/teachers etc. Or is it? What would happen if some of those additional resources needed to extend the school day weren't instead invested in other projects like Esperanza and a variety of other things to give children non-conventional ways of learning. Of course, to avoid the temptation of evil, some measure of compliance would be necessary and perhaps more complicated to achieve than through compulsory education...
