NOT THAT ANY PARTICULAR DAY OF SCHOOL IS IMPORTANT...:

On Take Your Child to Work Day 2010, Some Schools Say Don't (Lina Skorbach, Apr 22, 2010, Epoch Times)

Thursday is 2010's Take Your Child to Work Day, but not all schools are excited about their students skipping class to join their parents in the workplace, even for a day.

Schools like the Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) in Arizona say that missing school can disrupt other student’s learning, impact academic achievement and interrupt the school’s schedule, according to a DVUSD newsletter. The district encouraged parents to take their children to work in June instead of April in order to not disturb the child’s academic year.


...but kids will obviously learn more by just going through a work day routine with a parent than they'll learn in school. Indeed, the chief danger is that they'll be exposed to how useless school lessons are for adult life.
