Many people are urging schools to extend kindergarten from a half to a full day. The typical rationale is that the American middle-class five-year old is wasting his time by attending school only three hours instead of six. Many children living in adversity need a full day of school because the school is presently the most appropriate place for providing these children a safe environment and a well-balanced day that includes rest and wholesome food, education through informal work-play experiences, and opportunities for natural social-emotional development.
