So in Indiana (not one of the 5 states) we go to school 185 days. That would mean increasing the day by over 1 1/2 hours. My kids are in school from 8:00 to 3:40, 7 hours 40 min. That would mean over 9 hours a day. INSANE! And to think of bus kids...we have another 40 min each way on the bus!
On the flip side, we're in class for 180 days (teachers go for 190) and Elementary starts at 8:30 and gets out at 2:35 while Middle starts between 745 and 8 and is done by 2. I would love to see our school day extended by a good hour a day.
