To investigate elementary students' school day, teachers recorded exact beginning and ending times for students' activities. Length of school day varied widely based on student and classroom characteristics. Students with longer days tended to be white and have fewer special needs. How students spent their time varied by student, family, and classroom characteristics. Black students spent more time on academics and less on enrichment and recess than white students. (SM)
