    extended day

    My initial thought is that having a longer day is going to be very hard on the youngest students. I teach K and it is all we can do to get to 3:00 as it is-especially during the second half of the year when rest time has to be cut down to allow time for more instruction. Even for first graders a regular day is pretty long! I think it is GREAT that they want to allow more children to participate in extracurriculars, but maybe a better option would be to research how to get more funding for the after-school programs. :)
