Geoffrey Canada ’74 Weighs In on Longer School Day (New York Times)

Harlem Children’s Zone President and CEO Geoffrey Canada ’74 writes about the need for an extended school day in an op-ed piece for The New York Times. It helps families, Canada writes, and it helps society.

“What happens when children are not engaged in enriching activities is well-documented: crimes committed by youth in the hours immediately after school soar, as do teen pregnancies,” writes Canada in the Room for Debate piece. “Failing to do our best to educate all of America’s children is a mistake that will hurt this country for years to come.”
