How often does your child have specials? I'm disappointed with our current district's schedule for specials, and am just wondering if I'm expecting too much.
PE ~ 25 minutes 1x a week
music ~ 25 minutes 1x a week
art ~ none (no art teacher, parent volunteers teach a short lesson on a famous artist 1x a month)
library ~ 30 minutes 1x a week with parent volunteers (librarian funding cut 2 years ago)
computers ~ 25 minutes 1x a week
Aside from the lack of art and library instruction, I also find it strange that all specials occur on the same day. For example, DS has specials on Tuesday so he has PE, music and computers all on the same day rather than spread throughout the week.
