No I think reducing the number of school days from 5 to 4 would be a bad idea especially for the parents who would have no choice but to face a couple of chioces like a day care or quit a job.  Neither of which would be good chioces in this environment.

I think school should be increased to 6 days a week but schools should end at 1pm on Saturday n Monday to Friday should be 9am to 6pm.

I believe school days should be align to parents work days.  Besides we are preparing our children for the future.  So in a strange way it prepares them for how long a work week is and a parents benefit is that they could be relieve to know where the children are while they are working.

No to 4 days a week for school everytime you turn around they out around here.  They do not go enough to retain what they are learning now.  Kids need repition to learn.

I don't think school should be reduced, but I also don't think it should be increased. I don't know about you guys, but after 7 hours of school everyday, I was exhausted and drowsy once I got home. Kids need at least a couple days a week to refresh and get some rest.

I think school days can continue to be 5 days/week.  However, the start of the day needs to be shortened from 7:30 to 9 pm.  Children wake up entirely too early these days for school and it shows.  Most of them are so tired that once they battle to stay awake during school they come home and nap for 2-4 hours!  If school days started later, the would get a better sleep at night and be fresher not only in the morning but also during school.  This would most likely lend itself to improved learning and retention by our students.

They need to stay at 5 days a week.  The kids get tired enough as it is without adding two more hours to their day.  I think their learning would certainly suffer.  We are already behind some other nations and don't need to get further behind.

5 days of school are great because it's just preparing the kids for the real world when they grow up. Most of us adults have jobs of 5 to 6 days a week.

NO!  we should think of making it longer.  Look at other countries, to them education is very important.  We should let our children know that having a good education is very important these days. :thumbsup:

I think 5 days a week is enough for all school kids and teachers. And no more than 6 hrs a day.

Thats a good question. I think it depends on how well and efficiently the the education system delivers the goods. I don't think it would be a problem for the students. Children adjust very well to change.

I remember working 4 days a week (4 days @ 10 hours a day).  It was difficult for me at times as an adult.  I can see the kids not being able to hold their attention span that long.  Especially the little ones as someone pointed out before.  We already have a surplus of latch key kids who let themselves into their house without mom or dad present.  So...giving them another day to be alone every week is not the answer.  I understand in this day and age, both parents work, but it definitely has a cost.

My heart goes out to those women that are single moms just trying to make ends meet.  While she did have a home and a husband at one time, having children was natural to having a family.  She didn't sit down and think "now someday I may not have my husband, so I better not have any kids".  This woman is raising her children now with an absentee father and must work.  While she may not view the school as her private baby sitting service, she certainly is grateful she has the time to work and make a living.  Trying to get child care for an extra week more a month would be a hit to her budget in more ways than one.
