Make more use of schools

Comment 6th July 2010

Reduce the school holidays and increase school day lengths.  Use teachers and school facilities to better motivate children and prepare them for the future.

The extra time available could easily be spent productively but without further exam pressure in such areas as sport, music, business, etc along with extra tuition for struggling students.

Why does this matter?

The burden of workers having to pick up children at 3pm, and entertain them during ridiculously long school holidays is a big problem for employers.

Additionally, children get bored and are not reaching their full potential.  The time that is wasted during each school year could be better spent improving the education, capability, social conscience and responsibility of our future generations.

What better way of curing the ills of the country than by improving the people that live in it, and that can only be done from their early years.
