Prisoners of Time: Too Much To Teach, Not Enough Time To Teach It.
In 1994, the National Education Commission on Time and Learning (NECTL) published "Prisoners of Time," an eye-opening study into how much schools are governed by the clock and calendar, and how families, administrators, and teachers are subsequently affected. This report expands and updates the 1994 report, adding informative questions and answers addressing a variety of critical issues in education, including time reform, instructional configurations, before- and after-school programs, school readiness, poverty, and technology; updated statistics; and current reports on five schools featured in the 1994 report for their unique educational programs and skillful use of time.
