Do Schools Need a Longer School Day? A Debate

A policy brief released last month concluded that most U.S. public schools require at least as much or even more instructional time for students than countries touted for their high performance on international tests. Is a longer instructional day necessary in the United States? Jennifer Davis, co-founder and president of the National Center on Time & Learning and Jodi Grant, executive director of the nonprofit Afterschool Alliance  debate the question.
