All of you who think that school should be longer are really .
My name is Angel Woodworth and i am an 8th grade student at Baldwin jr.sr. high school and I think that school days should not be longer. I think that students and teachers need time for themselves. People need time to be with their families and for other activities. Some people aren't very comfortable with the hours we already have, getting up early and getting out of school at 2:45 then doing sports and all that and if you increased the school hours people wouldn't be very happy. They would be tired and not up to do anything in their personal life with families and friends. These are some reasons i think we should not make school days longer.
so am i and i agrree
I am fortunate in that my school hosts several foreign exchange students each year. The one thing each seems to have in common is thier home countries all have a longer school year and most start school earlier and end earlier during the day. My foriegn exchange students have a stronger work ethnic and in turn get better grades. I don't see a problem with going to school for 9 weeks then having a week off, and repeating that same pattern until summer. Begin summer with a 2 week break then start a new 4 week term with another 1 week off, then finish with a 5 week term and 2 weeks off before the new school year starts. Students lose so much momentum and knowledge having 3 months off, that is difficult to get them back to where they left off once the summer ends.
i think we should keep it the same to
i think that this is right because kids would and it would be more for the school
and your point is.....
Having a longer school day will cause the students to get more crabby and impatient and will cause more fights. Lengthening the school day will also be more expensive because you will need to heat and run the school longer.
i have 85 minute classes at my school and it is not needed. we also hev 10 minutes in between classes and 4 classes a day. it gets confusing as to what classes you have on what day. We do not need to be in class for so long. kids just get bored of sitting all of the time. We dont get hall passes while in class either and that is dumb becasue when you have to go then you have to go and teachers should let you. What is it going to hurt. two less minutes of learning is not going to hurt. i totally agree
if we have year round school we should have a year of break right after
