Learning Time in America Update

Author: David Farbman

Learning Time in America: Trends to Reform the American School Calendar, an update to a July 2011 report of the same name, provides a comprehensive overview of legislative and policy developments at the federal, state, and district levels to close achievement gaps and improve public school through expanding learning time. The report also includes results from a national survey showing broad support for more learning time. Three-quarters of respondents – including 80 percent of parents with children enrolled in public schools – agreed that more time in school will better prepare students for success in college and the workforce.
