I hope this idea never ever catches on! Why punish our kids and make them stay in school longer because employers are still married to the antiquated idea of an 8 hour work day. Most adults are not productive for more than 6 hours a day so why on earth would it ever be a good idea to make kids stay in school longer? And no, free play and/or more recess is not the answer! I wish my kids only had a 6 hour school day!I think they would be happier and more productive!
