Sixth-grader weighs in on longer school day

When you first start in an extended school day, it’s pretty hard to get used to.

At my old school, the John D. Philbrick Elementary School in Roslindale, the days went from 9:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., and we had about 25 minutes of homework for math and another 25 minutes for English. When I got home I usually did my homework. There was plenty of time left to watch TV, play on the computer, or go outside.
