I think that everyone knows that a longer school day is in CPS future, but we need to plan an enriched program. Consider including a second language, voice, instruments, or drama instead of more teaching to the test. Students need to be engaged not just have the day lengthened and their homework load prolonged. My child does homework from 4:00 until 9:00 and a longer day would rob my child of a life outside of school.
