Extra Credit!

Well, I can't promise your teacher will give you extra credit if you watch our new segment on Sunday morning...  But I hope he/she does, because I think you deserve it if you get up at 8:35 to see yours truly.

The details:  "Extra Credit," CNN Sunday Morning, at (or just after) 8:35 a.m. ET.  I'll be talking about YOU, recapping some of your blog comments and mentioning a couple of classes live on CNN (not HLN, where our regular show airs).

Hope you get the chance to check it out!  If you do, please let us know what you think.  And have a great weekend.

Carl Azuz, Anchor

Note to readers:  A couple of you asked whether the Extra Credit segment would be posted online.  You can now view one of our special reports by clicking right here.  Enjoy!

    I don't think we should have longer school days because we have to also do homework and afterschool activities so we have a life!

    I really do hope my comments get on the show. Hey, Carl. Do they post Extra Credit on CNN Video Homepage, because I haven't got time to watch TV at 8:35. If they do, please inform me at this blog so as to let me know.

    (Don't post THIS comment on your show!)

    longer school days!!!! Thats like taking away chocolate from the world..... and thats bad!!!! I think their is somthing wrong with Oboma because if he makes school days longer he is going to have every kid in America mad at him.

    It is kinda true that people are getting kinda dumb these days. So maybe being in school longer is better.

    i think teahers should give more extra credit.because some of us deserve it.

    I think that the people who really worked hard deserve extra credit some people really dont do much in school.It would be really cool if teachers would hand out more extra credit.

    i think some students deserve it because some students work really hard and some students just slack off in school so it would be sweet that teachers give more extra credit

    March 13, 2009 at 12:54 pm |
  15. Kaitlyn

    I think so because sometimes we turn stuff in on time and also we do what we are told to do .

    March 13, 2009 at 1:06 pm |
  16. Megz

    I think that all the teachers should give you extra credit if you do extra things for school on the weekend. If you don't get extra credit that stinks because its like doing homework on the weekends. Some of our teachers may be asking for us to do the extra credit on the weekend.

    i think we should get extra credit. i mean we woke up early on a sunday. that in it's self deservies it.

    I wanna comment as a South Korean. Mr.Obama, don't do that!!!! Longer school days will ruin student's sleeping rights.

  23. Tiffany

    8:35 a.m? that's not early at all. most ppl here gets up at 5:00

    March 13, 2009 at 10:39 pm |
  24. bridget :)

    I would like to get up and watch it. I hope i get extra credit because I am cool and I deserve it very much.

    March 13, 2009 at 11:54 pm |
  25. Matthew

    Hey Carl it's Matt ...people get paid over time so I say why not get extra credit for work you do at home during non-school hours

    March 14, 2009 at 1:32 am |
  26. lyra

    hey that means more school time! I don't agree.
    this is not very good.
    I hope this will not come true

    March 14, 2009 at 9:41 am |
  27. aspen

    i know, i agree. extra credit for it. but, i mean. yeah. lmao. – carl's amazing, aside from the jokes at the end of every show...

    March 14, 2009 at 11:50 am |
  28. Jhane'

    Well me personally I think that some students might need the extra time in school to prepare for whatever they might wanna acomplish in life. But on the other hand we really don't need extra time in school if we use our time wisely.

    March 14, 2009 at 1:33 pm |
  29. Zack

    we should not have more time at school because it just gets plain boring except for some things it would be both good and bad

    March 14, 2009 at 4:03 pm |
  30. Southside stepper ♥

    i will promise that i will watch it! i watch your show everyday! I LOVE CNN STUDENT NEWS! Your puns are sooo punny! i comment a lot on the blogs and my math teacher says i will get extra credit if one ends up on air! dont let me down carl!

  33. Shahob

    my comments never get posted 🙁 anyways what i think about president obama's new statement for longer school days is probably not what the us students would want but it would help our education get alot better for the future of America. Oh and Carl you got some pretty good jokes.

    I guess I got up a little to early. I woke up at 7:30 because I set my alarm clock at the wrong time. I hope it's worth it.

    March 14, 2009 at 8:24 pm |
  35. Juniper

    Uh oh. wrong day!

    March 14, 2009 at 8:25 pm |
  36. Ashley

    I think it's would be great to get extra credit because it really deserves for students who work very hard.

    March 15, 2009 at 4:32 am |
  37. DAVE

    Well Carl I didn't know that you were coming on the news sunday... can you tell me Carl of how can I sign up for your email letter.

    I think that if we have more time at school we should be doing homework during that extra time. it makes no sense, maybe Obama should see how his daughters feel about it!!!

    Carl enough with the terrible puns already

    March 15, 2009 at 5:24 pm |
  42. Shania

    That would be totally cool but, some people probably cant get on because their parents arent home or theyre just to busy. A lot of my friends are and so am I. But I could probably get on Cnn and watch Carl. You totally rock.

    March 15, 2009 at 8:57 pm |
  43. Haley

    This could cause problems with students, especially with the unmotivated. I mean, half the kids don't want to come to school in the first place, so why would they want to stay later? Although this could help students and teachers finish homework and fun lesson plans, you have to think about the students who are struggling outside of school. Many have a part-time job (some even two) and they are working them to help support themselves and their families.

    March 15, 2009 at 9:36 pm |
  44. Bob

    You got to be kidding thats crazy to make school longer!

    P.S. Try working on your puns Carl.

    I think that we should get extra credit to watch your show on Sunday. If we are able to get up on Sunday and watch your show then we really should. If we did this we would have to find a way to prove that we actually watch it.

    I wish people would have more school so we are ready for the CRCT and the next grade so we can pass and have a great life.plus we would love for teachers to have extra money if they work better is so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  52. kelly

    it would be nice to have extea credit some times (please tell that to our teachers) but if you give to much then people are going to be more "teacher's pets"/spoiled.
