Students should have shorter school hours every school day because students would have a better chance at participating in after school activities.

According to seattlepi.com, students from other countries have shorter school hours and still get better test scores then the students here in the U.S. for example, Finland has better test scores even though Finland students are only in school for 3 hours and 45 minutes.

Shorter school days will be cost efficient because students aren’t at school so long and the school will save money on heating,electricity, air conditioning,and school supplies.

“Yes school should be shorter because you will have more time to finish homework and projects,” said Ismael.

Some students do not agree though. “No school shouldn’t be shorter because it goes by fast when you’re doing something,” said Joseph.

In our opinion we think school should be shorter because we think it is not necessary to be in school for 7 hours. If it was 5 hours we would have more time outside of school and have more time on homework and extra credit work to stay on track in school.
