My DD LOVES going to school, and only goes 3 days a week now. (pre school) I feel M-F is good. As one who taught, if anything an extra hour in that day would have been nice sometimes, to get more projects in, but honestly, I have always worked quite well with the daily schedule. I made sure to make school FUN too (as best I could with curriculum). The type of teacher and classroom structure makes a huge difference on WHAT students get out of each school day.

kerp, perhaps you should have spent more time in school learning definitions of words.
in·sti·tu·tion (nst-tshn, -ty-) n. 1. The act of instituting. 2. a. A custom, practice, relationship, or behavioral pattern of importance in the life of a community or society: the institutions of marriage and the family. b. Informal One long associated with a specified place, position, or function. 3. a. An established organization or foundation, especially one dedicated to education, public service, or culture. b. The building or buildings housing such an organization.
A school most definitely is an institution. And you are the one making ignorant statements, as I do not keep my children home out of fear. Nor are my children attached to me and locked away from society. They actually spend more time in reality than children who are locked in a classroom all day.
