Quoting ~I'm his beauty~:" Thats a long day for a young kid well any kid really. The regular school hours here is 7:45 to 3:15....and I hate it. Charter School is sounding more and more better for my son."
I thought it was a really long day as well but then I though about it and the kids aren't sitting in their seats the entire time like in a traditional school.
They can be doing a science project outdoors for over an hour or they can be in dance for another hour.
When it's broken up into parts like that, I can see it not being as tedious as a regular hours for a regular public school.
