  • 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 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

  • 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.

  • Yay, School Extension!

    I vote that school should be extended. School should be extended because, students need to be social to make friends and if you have friends, they will be able to help you if you need help. Also, your friends will always be there for you. This is why I vote that school hours should be extended.

  • School is too short

    School is too short to prepare kids for the real world. If school were longer we could have an easier life with all the invention they make. This will lead to more jobs for people. The earth would be a lot more smart if school days were longer. This would help everyone

  • Books are to learn not to force.

    Students and teachers are getting more and more tired each day. Students are busy doing their homework's, projects and much more while teachers are busy marking papers and homework's. Each day we only consisted 24 hour to do or to spend our time. Most of us spend more time to school. 8 hours are used in school. 8 hours are use in sleep. That's means we only 8 hours to do and to spend with our parents, friends and mainly homework's. If school still extend our time at school, we won't be able to finish our homework or to study and to enjoy our happy moment with our lovely family. Students and teachers are humans, we do have family and friends. We do need rest and relax. If school are really that important to extend our time at school, by the end most of us will be frustrated and stressful.

  • Of course yes

    Of course yesTeachers may feel less rushed to complete teaching standards and have more time for creative projects. Working parents who cannot be home after school hours will worry less about child care expenses. Students who need the extra time will get the opportunity to do so, relieving them of any stress due to a lack of understanding of a subject.

  • School is great!

    Many kids are bored at home so an exra hour of school means they get to be with their friends and maybe even play some sports while at home students are more likely to play video games, use the computer which can strain their eyes. At school students can study or get ready for tests they might have the next day

  • 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.

  • 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!?!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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. 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.

  • Kids won't have any free time.

    Us humans already spend most of our lives cooped up school,and most of the time even that is against our own will. Why should we be orderded about any longer? Don't people care about kids opinions? Just because they are kids dosen't make them any less important than grown ups.

  • Days are long enough without dragging the school day out even more.

    8 hours a day is all dedicated to school work and a child has too have 10 hours sleep. That is 18 hours taken away from our normal everyday life. Which leaves us with 6 hours to do what we want to do. With a few extra hours added to school there is hardly any time left to do what a child needs to do!
