An extended school day gives administrators the ability to ensure children get a well-rounded education. Many schools today are sacrificing social studies, the arts and physical education so children can cover basic subjects like math, English and science. This is hurting children across America, depriving them of the chance to find discipline and self-expression through the arts; and we should be ashamed to cut physical education while our children face an obesity epidemic. Extending the school day would also help families. In two-parent households, women have increasingly entered the workplace, and in single-parent households, there is even more of a need for the adults to work.

Michelle Smith Background Reading One October 26, 2012 Professor Moulds Barbie against Superman: Gender stereotypes and Gender Equity in the Classroom: Summary In a tech savvy era that revolves around mass media, our youth, along with everyone else, are surrounded with images and ideals that portray particular stereotypes.

A man takes maybe 20 minutes to a half an hour. In the business world women are not expected to reach a high plateau in their lives but rather stand behind a man who does. Women also have to deal with professional segregation, social expectations since the man is suppose to be the superior one.

Feminism has shaped women’s rights, self-esteem and opportunities for young girls since the 1960’s, producing a generation of independent young women succeeding in education and employment, Sue Sharpe found female aspirations had changed dramatically, with love and marriage being behind having jobs and a career. Another reason that feminism is the main cause of girl’s achievement in education is the changes to family, 90% of single parent families are women, and these strong independent women provide a positive role model to their daughters.

Angela McRobbie supports this theory, stating that the emphasis had changed for girls from finding a husband to having a career.

It also turns out that the more hours women work, the pay difference increases. A study done in 2010 showed that a woman who worked forty to forty-four hours a week got paid eighty-five percent of a man’s pay who worked the same amount of hours.
