No. Children spend most hours of their day at school, and afterwards have many hours of homework. If school days were to be longer, homework should be banished allowing children to be able to socialise

Should kids go to school longer?

Whether school days should be longer or shorter is definitely a large issue in our society. Obviously almost 100% if not that much of the school population does not want to have longer school days, that is just how they are. However, school days being longer would be useful to a child's education if they can learn more in a shorter amount of time. That can give them a greater overall knowledge as time progresses. There is definitely a large debate that goes on about what the government should do and if they should increase the length of the school day and/or the number of days. This standard fluctuates depending on what state you are in. Children may not like the idea at first, but I can imagine that eventually after a while they will just get used to it and move on and continue with their education, and their lives. Of course, others tend to disagree. Most socialization happens away from school. Plus bonding with your own family is a psychological requirement. Children need to have hobbies and interests of their own, have a life away from school, and to interact with other age groups. Children will not always live in the sheltered world of school, so they need to be exposed to the real world and without the artificial rules and structure of school. Schools often have unnecessary and overly picky dress code rules and children are more tolerant and accepting when they are exposed to differences in culture that are not allowed at school. Most who are pushing for longer school days, weeks, or years really have agendas. They want to destroy the heterosexual family, destroy free thought, and promote things to children their parents find quite destructive.
