President Barack Obama started the school week Monday with a call for a longer school year during a nationally broadcast interview.
When asked if he supported a year-round school year, Obama said that he thought a longer school year would make sense, but did not give specifics as to how much longer he thought the school year should be. U.S. students attend classes an average of one month less than children in most other advanced countries.
Do you think kids should have a longer school year? Why or why not?
