Students who spend more hours in the classroom aren't guaranteed higher test scores, and many nations that outpace the U.S. on standardized reading and math assessments keep their children in school for much less time, according to a report from the National School Boards Association.
Mr. Hull, the study's sole credited author, argues that lengthening the school year, while maintaining the same curricula and teaching methods, isn't the answer.
"There is a perception among policymakers and the public that U.S. students spend less time in school. The data clearly shows that most U.S. schools require at least as much or more instructional time as other countries," said Jim Hull, senior policy analyst at the NSBA's Center for Public Education.
