Extending the School Year and Day. ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management: ERIC Digest, Number Seven.
Ellis, Thomas I.
Arguments for lengthening the school day and/or school year are predicated on the notion that more time devoted to learning will yield proportionally higher achievement scores. Research reveals, however, that the correlation between time and achievement is far slighter than expected. The quality of instructional time is more important than quantity; moreover, the costs of extending school time are disproportionate to any resulting instructional gains. (TE)
