Teachers told to cut the "fluff" to make up for snow days

After being closed for about a week, schools in the Washington, D.C., area were busy clearing sidewalks and parking lots Monday to prepare for students to return to school today, but some schools decided to remain closed because they were unable to remove the abundance of snow. Teachers and administrators in West Virginia's Raleigh County spent Monday advising teachers how to make up for the lost instructional time when classes resumed Tuesday. "Our teachers will have to cut all of the fluff and teach the essentials to our students," one high-school principal said. The Washington Post
