Most schools start at eight in the morning and end at half past two in the afternoon. Some people believe that school hours should be extended, but I don't think so. School hours should remain just the way they are. This is because long hours of school will lead to stress and cause students' academic performance to drop. We do not want this
I am a British teen who is still in the school system and I believe that school hours should be lengthened. I think this because the education system isn't educating children well enough to compete with other countries like japan and china. in Japan, many schools have over 13 hour long days although their child suicide rate is one of the highest in the world. I am defiantly not suggesting that school days should be this long but I still think that they should be at least eight hours as this would be similar to the time they will spend working when they grow up. Also, a longer school day would reduce the need for homework which would reduce stress and it may give more time for social interactions with new people at school.
Having an eight hour school day would be something like eight in the morning until four in the afternoon. That is really the entire day. Say it takes about half an hour to get home. The student then needs to do homework, wash up, eat dinner, and then go to bed. There is no free time for the student at all.
