The teaching lasts five days a week constantly until the weather changes and holiday breaks give students a time to refresh themselves. In America, this is the average school life for every child. In some countries, this time is considered too early and some Heritage students agree.

March 4, 2013 Erika Davidoff 0

The United States’ new Secretary of Defense is a decorated war veteran and recipient of two Purple Hearts. He’s a former investment banker, a former CEO and a former senator. As a young man, he was a community organizer for Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign. He’s a professor at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, and he heads the Atlantic Council, a think tank that strives to strengthen trade and economic bonds between the U.S. and the nations of the Eurasian continent. Chuck Hagel, if nothing else, is a highly accomplished man.

“I am very optimistic about Hagel as secretary, and think he is very qualified,” says Kaylene Wright ’13. “He is a veteran, he has voluntarily opted out of the ‘safer’ option, and works hard for veterans and their families now.”
