  • Yes, longer school days.

    I say yes. There are a lot of kids struggling in classes. Having longer class time means that a lot more stuff will get finished that might have not because there was too little time. The longer class times doesn't mean that it has to just be the teacher up inn front. This could be a time where the teacher walks around asking students if they need help. It could be a homework period. Maybe they have sports. They could get all their homework done if there is longer school days. And teachers worry so much about students not doing homework. This could be the time that the kids who don't do homework do it and not waste time playing video games.

  • Yes, Make School Days Longer

    School days, for most students, could be at least an hour longer. Today, a great number of schools clock the bare minimum of required hours of instruction or student attendance. An extra hour would give instructors an extra ten minutes per class to answer questions or just "be there" while assignments are started in case students are having difficulty.
    School in the 50s and 60s ran from 8:30 to 3:30. Schools now run from 9:00 to 2:00, leaving students one and a half hours of additional time that has no parental supervision.

  • Longer school days is a really good idea

    Kids need more time in school.The state tests have changed into a really hard execrable night mare.If we want kids to pass with hundreds we should have longer school days!They need to get better at their debilitys and spend more time making friends too.Longer school days is an advantage! Yes we should have longer school days

  • I say yes

    A longer school day will enable kids to be able to do extra curricular activities that they don't normally do, for example, theater. This is able to help students in later life because it gives them a chance to practice their public speaking now, which is needed in daily and later life.

  • Longer school YES!!!!!!!

    We need extra school days because students like from Japan are WAY ahead of use because they have year round school. They have less breaks and more school time we on the other hand have less school and more breaks. America is the 48th on the charts of academics and japan is #1

  • Please say yes!!!!!!!!!!!

    Some kids regress over the summer. Lot of students don't get the work when they are at home so they don't do there homework. So why not extend it its better for you and for me. Plus the teachers can help out with the students and even give after school tutoring.

  • I vote yes.

    If school days are longer, kids have the chance to understand their curriculum better. They get the chance to interact more with their teachers and they get to be homework free with more time during class, that is if they aren't fooling around. Kids will enjoy the fact that they get out earlier and become happier.

  • Kids need school time.

    Yes, we need education to have a better life for jobs and money. If not, we wont really have much in life. Kids should be educated and it will be easy for their whole lives. And the smarter the better in life. We should have longer school days. SAY YES!.

  • Yes, it will help

    It will overall help the economy -- and for kids who have a bad home life, they can get the support they need at school only if the school day gets extended. It will help the economy overall because the more education the children of today have, the better our tomorrow will be.

  • Kids need more school time

    So kids just don't get why we may have longer school days. I have found that over half of the kids at my school are not doing there best or done get some things. Well that can all chang with longer school day. We can have better OAA scorers and smarter kids with more time in the class room.

  • School days are already long enough.

    There are just 24 hours a day. School in itself takes up around 8 of those hours with travel to and from school and homework. Kids need about 10 hours of sleep. That leaves just 6 hours a day for family life, eating, sleeping, health care, physical activity, developing social skills, learning life skills participating in extra curricular activities and sport, religious instruction, reading and so on. Many of these things are just as important as school.

  • Longer school YES!!!!!!!

  • Kids need family time.

    Kids need family time with their families so you can learn more about their religion and their blood line, anyway if there is more hours kids would not be paying attention. Teachers would be stressing and behavior would be unbelievable. Kids might stay home or their parents would let them stay home.

  • Why do we need more work?

    THINK AGAIN! Imagine how much stress it would be on all the students. But also the poor teachers! What about them and how are we supposed to pay for there after hours. Theyvalready stay at school planning so the will have no time left at all! Life is short. We dont need to spend the whole time at school. Lets see our families!?!

  • If we extend the school day, we will have more homework!

    If we will have more homework, we will go to sleep about at 3:00 AM. That is very bad for a child because they wake up about at 7:00, so kids will have about 4 hours to sleep. Children can die because of this. That means, that our population will decrease a lot, or no one will do their homework.

  • It's Pointless.

    School days do not need to be any longer than they already are. Teachers need to crack down and spend more time teaching. So much time is wasted in school, adding more time is not the answer to get a better education. It's about quality, not quantity. More time will only make it harder to pay attention.

  • It's all about attention span

    You need to keep in mind when considering this question how short attention spans are these days and how that is essentially encouraged by social networking and other easily accessible entertainment. Kids are bored walking into the school, keeping them in it longer isn't going to be productive. They're already counting the minutes, adding more won't result in any information sinking in.

  • Schools are long enough.

    Schools should provide better after school help and activities rather than increase the amount of hours students go to. Students have enough academics that they worry about so the school boards should concentrate on making the best of the hours that they already have. But in retrospect, schools should be more enforcing on the amount of days that students miss without a doctors note.

  • no

    It's Pointless. School days do not need to be any longer than they already are. Teachers need to crack down and spend more time teaching.

  • I m tired

    When i m coming from school, i m tired and i m finishing my homework at 10:00. I learn something new about once in a month. My brain is filled in schoolwork and homework, and if we extend it for even one hour, everyone in my school would get only F's because they would not have time to finish homework.
