it's really difficult for them to spend their extra time because of how much studies they are doing,
surely it's better to have both long rest and study so you sometimes find students are stressed caused by having so many courses. I reall understand that as I am too, on another hand we need skilled man nowadays then no why of complaining for such thing related to studies. I know and see and understand better referring to my university, things are much running here. bye!

shool days should only be extended from children who prefer this to be alone at home in front of the T.V. for their parents are not there for them...

This is an age old debate and stems from the minds of those who believe that "more is always better." In reality, what is needed is better quality school days, not longer. That requires a break from traditional thinking and doubtfully will appeal to many. For those who think that "more is better," have a look at the millions of overweight Americans! Or maybe even our wars!

I honestly don't think they should create longer school days...seriously folks, don't you remember how long the school days seemed back in the day? I do! And as much fun as I had with friends, I still couldn't wait to be done at 3pm!

The only positive I see is in school day hours that would coincide with work day hours, a longer lunch period and break between studies, potential for that time to be spent on sports or the arts.

I think the kids are in school long enough. Kids are vulernable to keeping focused on long and lengthy school hours. I realizze the need to be educated but lets not push it. There must be a motive or goal for the reason the mayor wants to make it toogher for the kids. I know I wouldn't want the school hours extended if I were still attending. There is an old saying that holds true, "All work and no play makes jack a dull boy". I sincerely believe that holds true. I think they already have a...

Lets not load them with more than they can handle.
