Longer school days-is that really what you want?
Our school days are already good; we don’t need to improve much. Will a longer school day improve it? The school days all over the world shouldn’t stretch longer than 6.5 hours. 8:00-2:30.extended school days give no time for family; there is no specific goal. Extended days will cost an unaffordable cost for the state and parents.
Extended school days will bring no good to the family time. Some children today don’t spend much time with their parents, and extended school days will cost even more of the precious time they do spend with their families. Kids would be too busy with school work, long days and homework, that they wouldn’t have time with their families. Also the teachers need to spend time with their families, and if school days will be longer, and the teachers will teach longer, they will miss precious time with their family.
After the families, there is another problem. The goal. There is no specific goal the school needs to reach. There is no curtain problem ELT can address. So that turn ELT to a big waste of time. Think of this: kids will stay in school after normal hours. They will get tired and angry. That will be no fun for teachers to teach like that, so they will just not teach them properly. The children will come home angry and without knowing something new, except for noticing what book their friend has. That is what will happen while they can be happy and playing or doing homework at home and eating a snack. Ask any normal child: what does he prefer; sitting at school, or watching a movie and eating a snack? most kids will agree with the second option. What makes it a waste of time and money.
Another problem is the cost. After all the problems I have already mentioned, would you pay for this?! For getting children out of home and barely seeing them, and for no goal? for such a waste of time?! I think this isn’t what any insane person would like. Paying for trouble while you can spend your money on more important things! and this would not be only the parents’ problem. also the state affords it. the state can’t support the ELT for a long period of time. people who want more time for learning after school can get private lessons. if his child needs help it just doesn’t mean everyone should stay longer!
Family, goal and cost. the kids wouldn’t have time for family, waste their time on learning programs with no goal, and it will cost just too much! These will be the results of extended school days. Is that really what you want?
