At this point you’ve spent a lot of your life in a classroom. Do you think you’d be better off if you spent more or less? I lean towards saying less, but only if I would have put that time to good use. I tend to think that a lot of today’s kids are overworked when it comes to school, but that’s probably because I went to a very competitive private school. There’s a lot of research that shows that more time in school leads to better outcomes, and The National Center on Time & Learning is a Boston, MA non-profit that “is dedicated to expanding learning time to improve student achievement and enable a well-rounded education.” Even though it pains me to say it, The National Center on Time & Learning probably has it right.
To really understand why the NCTL is doing what they’re doing, you have to read up on the research. Their document called The Case for Improving and Expanding Time in School will help you understand why they are pushing the agenda that they’re pushing. If you need an easier entry to the topic, you can watch this video:
The NCTL does a great job of making the case for why time matters, and that’s good, since it’s most of what they do. The end goal is to “support national, state and local initiatives that add significantly more school time for academic and enrichment opportunities to help children meet the demands of the 21st century.” If you’d like to join the push for more time, visit the NCTL’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a Digital Media Associate.
