Domonique Toombs felt the same way when she learned she would stay for an extra three hours each day in sixth grade at Boston's Clarence R. Edwards Middle School.

"I was like, `Wow, are you serious?'" she said. "That's three more hours I won't be able to chill with my friends after school."

orlly?


He just wants them open at weekends. Not forced to go on weekends?

longer school days, school on weekends and summer vacation.
discuss


The president, who has a sixth-grader and a third-grader, wants schools to add time to classes, to stay open late and to let kids in on weekends so they have a safe place to go.


I interpreted that as he just wanted them to stay open, not have kids be there to learn and stuff.

i think you could do it if, instead of one massive summer vacation, you got the entire months of december, april, and august off. then you would get more school, but the breaks would make it more manageable. you could do the year in three parts.

Americans can go to school twice as much and still be dumber than other countries. I hate to admit that but it's true. Our society dumbs down our kids, not a lack of schooling.

When I lived in Japan, they did something similar. There was a 25 day break in the winter and another in the summer, plus 2-2 1/2 weeks off in April (when the school year begins and ends there). Also, the school days were a bit longer, and sometimes there would be mandatory school events on Saturdays, though that only would happen every couple months or so. For a while it kind of pissed me off, but then I got used to it, though the summer and winter breaks still felt a bit short.

The US public school system is a good bit behind the rest of the world though, and while I think other things need to be focused on first before school is extended, the proposal is probably a good idea.

It's the kids, not the school, nor how many hours kids spend in it. I suggest concentration/work camps.

the quality of education needs to improve. Especially in California. They just keep lowering and lowering their standards to accommodate all the people who absolutely suck and can't pass basic math and grammar classes.
