    The YMCA has gotten so expensive that working parents can't afford to send their children there anymore.

      My kid already stays at school til 5 everyday. It’s called the after school program. She starts school at 8 and I start at 8:30... I get off at 4:30 so I get her by 5:00.... I’m a single mom with no help with my family so this program saves my life. Plus my daughter loves the program. Games, crafts, help with homework ....they need this program in places where they don’t already. And no her program isn’t just school ALL day. When school is out at 1:30 they play and do crafts. So her brain is fried lol

        I remember in middle school, in Cali, I went to school from 8 to 3
        But right after 3 I’d have to go to an after school program “Think Together” & I remember we would do our homework, go out & play a different sport everyday, on fridays we would have like small eating contest, raffles .etc I really liked it & never thought of it as part of school because they didn’t give out homework but instead made sure we actually understood it
        Plus I got to meet so many cool people 🙂
        As an adult now , I do understand what Loni is saying though
        But I for sure do not believe on teachers having to basically be baby sitters. As parents, we need to do our part as well , kids already have the tools in school but at home we need to make sure they stay focused
        At least to make it easier on teachers 🤷🏻‍♀️ that’s just my opinion

          I was sent to school EVERY DAY till 19 (from 8 am). From 16:30 till 19:00 to do extracurriculars (swimming, gymnastics, volleyball, theatre) because my parents worked and because I was an only child. It was extremely beneficial for me.

              I’m unclear as to whether this is just free aftercare or longer school. I’m lost. Cause the former sounds great. The latter... idk about that

                They have programs like this in Italy, It is for kids whose parents work late. They have tutors, volunteers and many activities are offered. The kids are also given meals and it works well here. I think it is an excellent idea.

                    That’s horrible!!!! The heads sent baby sisters!!! Kids need time to play, do homework, and study too. When will they find they get a break???? All it will do is cause people to have hire even more babysitters. Furthermore, it people who have jobs in after school programs will only lose money and be out a job. It’s not helping anyone. No child should have sit at school for 10hrs!!!! Especially with all these school shootings.

                            People are talking about kids being tired, teachers being tired, people are missing the point PARENTS DON'T GET OFF WORK USUALLY UNTIL FIVE OR 6 HELLO. It is not the parent's fault corporate America needs to stop being greedy and let parents get off work to pick up their kids what will those last two hours mean really come on now. Then look how much money the city, state, and parents can save without any extra needed work from anyone else, work ends at 3pm easy duhhh.

                                what we have, is an after school program which means as soon as school is over some kids will go to the after school program and they will get food then an hour of homework and a hour of enrichment activities (art, sports, board games, stem, & csi). But teachers get to go home and we are hired by the district to work for the program and it ends at 6. Sometimes teachers will stay for an hour to help with HW and they will get paid an extra hour. Also it’s free no charge.

                                        And it’s not just that teachers are overworked, we aren’t getting paid enough for that work. If we were being paid by how much we actually do, we wouldn’t have to pick up so many extra jobs on the side.

                                          For the record studies show that longer school days would benefit children. Yes it has it's pros and cons. But shouldn't what's best for the child come first? And why is it so unheard of for teacher to work a 8 to 5 like everyone else? Btw I am teacher. And yes I know Kamala's plan is for 8 to 6.

                                            But what's the problem of a child that's in middle or high school being home alone?

If anything make school shorter, because half the time the children don't retain the information that is geting thrown at them in the normal time, because it gets boring. If we make school fun and short maybe kids will want to go to school and learn faster. Just what I think.

                                                              America is clearly very different, but there are many countries where kids don’t get off school til 6pm. The point of this is to keep kids off the streets and out of trouble, especially if they have working parents who won’t be home to watch their kids. The extra hours are not filled up with more lessons, it’s made up of extracurricular activities which the kids can choose from, INCLUDING homework club for those who might need help with it. I get the teachers are already underpaid and overworked, but if she (Kamala) could find a way to do it, it would really benefit the kids I think.

                                                                This does not sound bad to me as from elementary to middle school my school system in Alabama offered extended day, where we would go until our parents could pick us up. I think the cut off time was 5:30. My parents had to pay weekly and the teachers who CHOSE to stay and be a part was paid to do it. As much as I hated school, I did enjoy this because we would have a snack, have an allotted time to complete homework and have teachers and sometimes tutors there to help and then remaining time to play and watch movies. I’m shocked that more people are not aware of programs like this because I come from a county system with low funding and this was an option for us. I think it’s a great idea if implemented properly. Will this work for every teacher? No. But chances are there are some who would enjoy the extra pay and they could possibly choose which days they wanted to participate.

If you can’t afford it that’s life. Just like not everyone can’t have a huge house can’t have a bmw etc. we can’t try to even the playing fields in EVERYTHING. This is like giving a trophy to everyone on the team.
