An extra hour for reading is added to schedules in 100 Florida schools

Education Week describes how Florida pushes longer day, more reading in some schools.

In addition to studying the results of longer days, I hope education advocates don’t forget about the school districts such as Fairfax County that provide less than the average amount of time in school for elementary school students. These substandard schedules are sometimes overlooked when reforms are discussed.

Thanks to Blair Brown at the Time to Succeed Coalition for pointing out this excellent article.
