What?!?! Nooooo! I live in Connecticut and I'm sorry but this just cannot happen! School is so way long enough!

Also, a lot of schools are already having major budget cuts, and we're about to pay our teachers for more hours? That's a great plan! Why don't we start serving caviar for lunch and hors d'oeuvres before each class? Oh! And don't forget about giving each of us a laptop so we can do our schoolwork!

That's really irritating considering half of the stuff I do in school is busywork already. they're trying to give us more hours? So that we have to do even MORE busywork? They do realize that kids will start skipping more, right? This, I think, is the most stupid idea I have ever heard the government come up with, and, believe me, they've had a lot of stupid ideas. They think adding more hours is going to help us catch up with those Asian countries? Or that less kids will start dropping out or skipping? It won't help us catch up with China, Japan, etc. If anything, it'll make us more behind, as more of us kids will have less time to do homework, projects, study and the like. As for the skipping problem- if anything, more kids will start to skip. The kids that skip already consider school too long! Obviously, in order to combat against the skipping, the only answer is to give us more days and hours to be in school! (Can you sense the sarcasm? It's dripping.)

To be perfectly honest, I don't think this is going to make a difference. Studies show that just because you work LONGER doesn't mean you learn better. Working that late and then having to do about an hour to two hours of homework, is just too much and kids are going to stop paying attention. I know kids in Asia work more and are more successful and have more work ethic but the kid's parents are also teaching their kids differently. Personally, I think this is just going to make things worse.

I agree with more arts education in schools, but how will we be able to do other activities outside of school?

I'm homeschooled , and working to finish school early and I have a lot of school to, but I'm getting a good education.Kids are going to school and sitting around all day where I live (CA).They have short days and they have days where they don't go to school at all, and the school district might be taken over by the state because of budget cuts.I feel bad for the kids, they want us to run the U.S. one day but they are not getting a proper education.There should be more hours to the day but teachers actually need to teach, instead of just letting them draw all day. So their are to sides to this, Good and Bad.
