A majority of the public schools reduces the children's school days

Despite the skolereformens purpose on the opposite shortens a large number of schools and pupils ' days, according to a report.

Although the school reform carried out, which entered into force five years ago, would ensure the school-longer school days, many schools in the opposite direction.

It writes Jyllands-Posten.

A report from the Ministry of education shows that 64 percent of the schools shorten school days for students in 1.-3. class. In 2010, it was only the case in 30 percent of schools.

In 4.-9. class is that 74 percent of the schools, which makes the days shorter.

The schools can do by the insertion of two teachers in the class in some of the classes instead of one.

Both before and after the school reform carried out entered into force, it has met criticism from among other parents to make too large an inroad in the children's leisure activities.

Nonetheless, Claus Hjortdal, who is chairman of the country's school principals, that the reform provides an opportunity to break with social inheritance.

- Children have today is very skewed assumptions, when they start in school, and the children, who have never read a book with their parents, are lagging behind in comparison to those that come from a home with a big bookcase.

- And the students who are lagging behind, certainly do not need that the school day should be shortened again, he says to Jyllands-Posten.

the Development comes, however, not the back of the Claus Hjortdal, as several politicians have criticised the long school days, while the municipalities according to him does not make the economy, as it requires to implement the longer days.

The driver, however, that teachers will find it difficult to lift the task of inclusion in the school.

Anders Bondo Christensen, who is chairman of the Danish Teachers ' association, believes that the development is very positive. There is nothing to indicate, according to him, that the longer school days lead to more proficient students.

- The longer school day binds many resources in the schools, so rather fewer hours and better quality teaching, he says to Jyllands-Posten.

Even if the schools had more money, would Anders Bondo Christensen does not wish to retain the longer days.

It has not been possible for the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten to get a comment from the minister for children and education Pernille Rosenkranz-Theil.
