Letter: 11-year-old student weighs in on extending school year, day

I want to say something about kids having to go to school. I have heard that Dr. Browder might look at making the school year or day longer for kids. I disagree that making the school day or year longer will benefit kids learning. We go to school long enough already.

If we cut out the extras, like recess, music, assemblies, band and winter sport programs, that take up learning time, we would have plenty of time for studies. Please don’t make the school time any longer! Thank you.
