Using Summer Programs To Explore the Relationship between Time and Learning.
DeBlois, Robert
Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n9 p714-17 May 1997
Notes that it is not known whether more time spent in school increases children's learning. Suggests that instead of running the "assembly line" for more hours, educators might try a summer program based on enrichment and fun-time activities as an alternative way to discover whether more learning time would be a good investment. An important program element is looking beyond school buildings as learning sites. (MLH)
