I personally do disagree as I'm a concerned parent - not yet has Child Welfare been mentioned.
So I have set up a petition
; if you like me disagree please sign and share.
•Longer hours will not ensure better standards as a child would not be able to focus for this length of time, even when extending time on music classes etc.
•How about children who are bullied in school? They would be left in this situation for even longer – could lead to serious outcomes i.e. suicide
•‘It is the quality of teaching at schools and students’ attitude towards learning that count most, not the number of hours students spend studying’ The OECD publication PISA in Focus

•Family life – under your proposed idea families would have limited time together; when parents are working shift hours or nights etc. The Convention of the Rights of the Child - Article 31 (Leisure, play and culture)says: Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities."
