Gokce, Feyyat

Amount of time spent at school is one of the mostly discussed educational matters. The present study was carried out to put forward the relationship between the time spent at school and learning acquisitions. In the study, 52 parents living in Bursa and 59 teachers were asked for their opinions. According to the data, while nearly half of the parents found the annual periods of academic years insufficient, nearly half of the participant teachers found it sufficient. More than half of the teachers thought that daily lesson hours and the length of a lesson hour were enough but the length of semester holidays and the numbers of academic terms were insufficient. From the results, it appeared that the parents and teachers held different opinions with respect to the time spent by students.
