People considering education to be daycare is exactly the problem. Requiring students to be in school longer will not increase student achievement. The school day is too long for many of them as it is. Peer to peer groups still require supervision. Also, as a teacher, I do not want to be compensated for working more hours. The money does not matter. I already put in 10-12 hour days. And so do many students — with homework and extracurricular activities. There are no more hours for us to put in.
