I really think the longer school day would really benefit the children in the Chicago Public Schools, but the approach needs to be centered and geared towards the children. I don't believe additional classes or courses need to be added to the school day, but I feel some courses should be extended to lengthen the school day to meet the new hours.
What I mean by really benefiting the children in schools is targeting areas that we know need to be targeted. Reading, Writing, Math and Science are those critical areas, specifically targeting Reading (comprehension/critical thinking) and Writing.
