All students in America, including children living in poverty, deserve an education that prepares them for success. Unfortunately, our outdated school calendar does not give schools enough time to prepare today’s students for success in higher education, in the workplace, and as engaged citizens.
Join us today in favor of ensuring that our high-poverty schools have the support and flexibility necessary to expand learning time for their students. More time for small-group instruction, project-based and hands-on learning, and enrichment courses will benefit students well beyond their time in the classroom.
Over 1,000 pioneering schools across the nation are already proving what can be accomplished when schools use more time well. The moment has come for policymakers and educators to take action. Join us today and add your voice in support of expanded learning time.
