No because we may not have time to learn enough and won't have enough time to learn the next day


On average, American students have approximately eight hours daily, for around 180 days every school year. I firmly believe that there should be a decrease in the amount ofhours students go to school per day, and make up for lost time by adding more school days.

Pushing students to sit in a classroom, writing notes, listening to long discussions, or working on worksheets stresses students too much. Students are being forced to be subjected to this every day in the hopes of them learning something, when, by the end of the day, they're overworked, tired, and simply eager to go home. However, with shorter daily school hours, students will be less overworked and burnt out, and will have more time to relax, rather than spend the duration of their afternoons studying and working on assignments.

The resolution should read:
"Should we have *fewer* school hours?"

Given this lapse in grammar, one should negate.
