The National Center on Time & Learning is an American organization “dedicated to expanding learning time to improve student achievement and enable a well-rounded education.”  As you hear more about increasing levels of after-school programs, the research and activities of this this organizations may become more relevant in Ontario.

One report, 2012, by David Farbman is titled Case of improving and expanding time in school, and on page  1 of the report, states:

“The evidence makes clear that expanded time holds this potential because more time confers three distinct, though overlapping, benefits for both students and teachers:

  1. More engaged time in academic classes, alongside broader and deeper coverage of curricula;
  2. More time devoted to enrichment classes and activities that enhance students’ educational experiences and engagement in school; and
  3. More dedicated time for teacher collaboration and embedded professional development that together enable educators to strengthen instruction and develop a shared commitment to high expectations.”
