Who asked him?

Peter Orszag (pictured, right), writing in the WaPo, attempts to make the case for the communal upbringing of children longer school day.

He claims, "Schools should remain open until 5 or 6 p.m. The result would be better-educated students and less-stressed parents."

Till 6? Ick.

This Orszag dude is a Princeton-trained economist who worked for the Obama Administration (OMB), has four kids (by three different women), is a bigwig at Citigroup, is a fellow at the Council of Foreign Relations, and still has time to run marathons, if that provides clues as to why he's all for weakening family ties.

Wow. And thanks for The Republic link. I've never actually read it. Sad. Scary.

Well put. These are the kind of people who want to dictate how everyone lives under state control.

Yeah, Plato wasn't a family values philosopher, Mel.

Except themselves, Ken.
