ok usually by the end of the day i can't concentrate because im so tired and if the teachers are going to give as much homework as they do then i'd be up till 3 in the morning doing homework

Very very bad idea. Who thinks of ridiculous things like this. So many reasons why this is a bad idea. It will take away from our afternoon activities like sports and music, being in school longer doesnt make you smarter, I have friends who are home schooled and they are as smart or smarter than many of my friends and they spend half the time we do. But I can see if you live in a bad neighborhood why you may not want to go home and it would probably keep some people out of trouble but overall its a stupid concept.

I can't even make it through the 7 hours we already have. I'm not going to put up with any more than that. I CAN'T put up with any more than that. >.<

this is a bad idea. I'm a straight a student and i still can barely focus for the six hours i am in school. i could not play volleyball and do hw and hav a minute of free time if i went to school for ten hrs. anyone else agree?

I go to an alternitive school, and our hours are from 7:45-4:45. The day goes by so fast, its like there is no difference between normal schools and mine. I personally love the longer hours because I get more time to work with teachers and understand the lessons. I do really well in school because of the longer hours, and I think that other people are just freaking out too much. You will always have time to do your extra curricular things-I do-and the longer hours really enable you to learn and have fun more. Just because it's against the normal does not mean it is bad. You just have to try it first.

Thanks so much! I was freaking out for a minute there.

I do not agree with that. While I do believe that America should have more school, I would kill myself before going for 12 hrs a day. A far better solution would be to just get rid of all of those random and stupid break days(not like summer vacay, but like those random "prep day" whatevers) They should just make summer vacation 2 months instead of three.

NO! we're already counting down the minutes to get out of school everyday...so why distract us more? It's gonna make us learn less because we're gonna be SOO tired from the day before! And then we still gotta go home and do homework, then we can't do any extra-curriculars except if it's with the school!!! NO! keep it the way it is or shorten it!!
