When DST hits Samoa on September 31, some schools will continue with their 
nominal schedules, effectively observing DST. However, Prime Minister Tuilaepa 
Sa’ilele Malielegaoi wants all schools to adjust their nominal schedules by an 
hour during DST, so that schools effectively continue to run on standard time. 
The Prime Minister criticized schools not on board with his plan, saying "Some 
teachers just have thick brains, they are not thinking properly." He also said, 
"The problem is that no matter the explanation I give to change the starting 
time for classes, some people just don't want to understand."
