Longer School Year

Will a longer school year help or hurt? What one parent shared with me.

Is it guaranteed children will learn more and become more productive citizens with a longer school year? Will children learn more in a formal classroom than they will in life, no matter how good the instructions? Can a classroom replace parental responsibility in education? Are they actually pent up and how will schools deal with that? If we do not have appreciable academic benefits now, how will extending the school year help that? How does a longer school year give poor children access to better and healthier meals?

How do educators determine if a child is gifted or not, natural learners or not? Children will learn wherever they are, just depends on if what you’re teaching can be (((applied))).  Why and how has this decision further divided parents, grandparents and educational professionals?

Supporters also say a longer school year would give poor children more access to school-provided healthy meals.

Why is this decision so hard? Whether educators have more time to enrich instruction or students have more time to learn how to play an instrument and write computer code, adding meaningful in-school hours is a critical investment that better prepares children to be successful in the 21st century. If educators have failed and are still failing to accomplish these simple task over (((twelve long years of public education))), how will they accomplish this by further extending school years? How is this an investment?
