The final school bell is ringing later for many kids this year. Some schools in Washington DC, and other cities have extended their school day. Supporters say more class time will help students learn more and improve their test scores. They also claim that longer school days give students more time for things like lunch and recess. Opponents argue that kids may lose focus, and that longer hours don't always mean better grades. They add that schools may not have the money to pay staff to work longer hours. What do you think?
