Lengthening the School Day

“Boston public schools have been saying for many years that we need a longer school day,” said Michael O’Neill, chairman of the School Committee. “But a longer day isn’t effective unless you also transform the quality of the education.”

More time for bad teaching does not lead to success. Also interesting that teachers will have a stipend for their extra time.
