I'm so glad i don't live there. But it the new health care gets passes, my school gets shut down.

I don't love there but that is not fair for anyone who does!!! I mean I feel so overworked right now from school. Kids need time to relax. More hours honestly is just too much.

honestly i think most kids ll start skipping school more. Also, i think more kids will be stressed and that will lead to stress related health issues. More time in class gives teachers more time to assign homework. Those of us who do extra curriculars, such as dance, will have to cut back. most extra curriculars provide exercise, so it would go against preventing child obesity.

Glad I'm homeschooled and that I graduate high school in May. But, even though I'm homeschooled it doesn't mean school is easy. I actually do school year round, and I'm never really done with work. There is always something else I could be working on. I'm also dual-enrolled in community college, so I have college work to do as well. I'm going to be ahead of other people my age when I graduate community college, though, because I'll be transferring into a four-year university as a junior at only 19. So even though my schooling is not at all easy, it's totally worth it.

I know this may seem like a small problem... but i have ADHD and i take medicine for it. It wears off after 6 hours and i don't know what i'd do if the day was longer. It would ruin my schedule and i would be hyper and extremely distracted the rest of the day! If we lengthened the school year we would practically be going to school into August! With all the snow days we're having now i don't think it's a good idea. Sorry for putting you through my long complaint! LOL.

Are you kidding me?! There is such a thing as tutors, people! Plus, what happens to the kids who are already smart and don't need extra schoolwork? Extending school hours is just going to make students more miserable!
P.S.; there was a spelling mistake in the first paragraph. It's "throw" not "through".
by HelenaPS on 12/4/2012 5:22:36 PM
why? we already wasted like 90% of our time in school? why make it longer? i swear, it's like they WANT us to be home-schooled.

Im from Westchester, NY and my teacher was talking about adding days, not hours. He said that we could start going into saturday and july. UGH
by prettypinkelephants on 12/4/2012 5:13:07 PM
I think each individual student should have the option to decide whether or not their day is longer. I would want to stay at school longer if it meant more electives because I am going to have trouble choosing between 4 electives next school year. Extending MY day would solve that problem. I'm not saying that it should change for everyone, just the people who want to stay longer.
