Nick Anderson of the Washington Post writes about the proposals to extend the school day and the school year in Alexandria, Virginia.

"The bottom line is that the length of the school day is no longer realistic when you consider the amount of content kids are expected to learn today compared to 30 years ago," said Jennifer Davis, president of the National Center on Time & Learning, based in Boston. "Across the country, we're hearing that teachers don't feel like they have time to cover the curriculum or meet the needs of individual students during the length of the school day."
