why they shouldn't make school days longer

As an 8th grade student at Frolio middle school in abington massachusetts, i think that school days should not be longer. Kids do not like attending school as it is, most would rather be doing something that they enjoy. This brings us to high school kids droping out. Making the school day longer will only overload kids bringing them to the conclusion that droping out of school is the best idea. Jobs are another reason for drop outs. Some kids have issues at home where it is assential that they work to help. If the school days are longer they will be obligated to drop out to work. It may be good only because it could help kids with their problem areas in school and keep them away from drugs and other kinds of trouble. Family is another issue. We will not have time to spend any time with our families and friends. Going to school for a long amout of time will overload our minds making it hard to focus throughout time. If the government really does want to help kids then after school tutoring are the best way.

I THINK SCHOOL DAYS SHOULD NOT BE LONGER BECAUSE IT WOULD MAKE STUDENT BE TIRED OR BORED SO THEY CAN'T STUDY.

LIKE IN ONE EAR AND OUT ANOTHER ONE.

I am also an eighth grader, and I also agree that the school days should not be longer. I get up at 5:30 every morning and have school until 2:30. After that, I have extra curricular activities for several hours. Therefore, I get home somewhere between 4 and 5 on average. I am taking all honors classes, so I have a lot of homework to complete once I get home. Often, I do not even finish it all until 10:30 or so. A little over 6 hours of sleep is not enough. Making the school day even longer than it is would make this worse. Students would be more tired, they would have less time to do homework and study, and wouldn't have as much time to do extra curricular activities. So I think it's a bad idea.

School sucks dude i mean we shouldnt even have school ok maybe a little school like 2 hours a day in the morning starting at like 9:00 that would give all the kids some time to sleep in and catch up on their missed sleep thats my opinion
