    I think that my kids get alot of breaks as it is but i think if they made school longer; they would just pack more things on the kids. It's just unbelieveable what these kids are having to learn these days. It's terrible when the kids get homework you can help them with. :(

    The current school day and school year came from an agrarian economy's needs established over 100 years ago. That is hardly the case today. Our school day and school year are currently based upon the teachers' union's ability to negotiate a contract. The results indicate we need more, not less, school time to have our children able to compete in a world where other countries are doing a better job educating their young. But it is not just the hours. Many things have to change before we are going to see better results than we are getting today and stopping the 'dumbing down' of performance standards would be a good place to start. Let's stop worrying about being politically correct and start concerning ourselves with just being correct. That would be nice.

    (I don't go to school) I would like year round school. You get a lot more breaks during the year and wouldn't be so burnt out by the end of the year. And you wouldn't have to spend so much time reviewing at the beginning of each year.

    I think that having a longer school year would be beneficial. Before that happens though, the focus should be on making all public schools in this country equal insofar as the finances, materials and resources available to each and every school.

    School should be 30 minutes longer each day- That comes out to 2.5 extra hours a week -- Staying in school longer makes for better learning

    I think children should go to school for a shorter period of time and then come to were they can learn family values and have a proper place for GOD since the liberals wont ev en although them to have christmas concerts!! Chirstmas is an American Holiday and if your in American schools, they should have CHRISTMAS CONCERTS!!! This gets me so furiated!!!

    The education system needs to be revamped. Maybe allow concentration earlier to engage more students in what interests them. I definitely think a second language needs to be taught sooner and more focus on world Geography.

    School should start at 9:00 and end at 3:00 in my opinion!

    Even though it is very tiring to the student (of any age) to be in school; I think if we want to compete with the rest of the world, we need to step it up. We are lazy in our study ethics compared to a lot of the world.

    I think they pack to much into to little time, my kids are always telling me they don't have enough time to get their stuff done at school. I'm all for them going longer hours. Just think longer hours could mean less homework, less homework gives you more time for sports. but then again that's just an old farts point of view.
