Saturday school! SWEET!

I would have KILLED for this in high school! KILLED!!

Cancel the cartoons. Hang up the hockey sticks. Sleep in no more. Saturday mornings in Philadelphia could take on a much faster pace for some students.

Beginning next month, the school district will begin offering some of its Advanced Placement courses on Saturdays.

The rigorous classes will last three hours. And they will run through May.

Up to now, the district has used Saturdays for remedial work or disciplinary classes.

Yes. You’re reading that right. The Philadelphia School District will be offering AP (advanced placement) classes on Saturday mornings to benefit smart kids in crappy schools. (And over-ambitious smart kids.)

Freaking awesome. Hopefully, this will work out; and the district will love the scores and smarts produced!
