Some people think that having extended school days are good, and some think that having extended school days can be bad. First of all, if your school day was extended, you may not be able to spend enough time with your family or friends who go to different schools. Second of all, an extended school day would cost the district more money. Studies show that students get tired from being in school for a long period of time.
An extended school day could offer more gym classes during regular hours, but the time for extracurricular activities will not be as long. It might also take babysitters out of business because the children will be at school for a longer period.
An extended school day could also benefit by giving teachers more time to get work done and cover the curriculum.
As you can see, having longer school days could be good and bad. Every day (except weekends) children have to wake up early just to go to school, but if there are longer school days then children would have to wake up EVEN EARLIER to go to school. That will make them more tired than they already are. Tell us what you think – are you for longer days or not?
