They're suggesting longer school days
The Center for American Progress says school schedules aren’t working for parents, and haven’t caught up to the reality of modern families’ lives.
The majority of parents, about 70 percent, work full-time from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. But most schools end at around 2:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m., causing many parents to scramble with after-school care.
A committee is making an argument that the school hours don’t make any sense for working parents and we need to change it.
