UK School to Run Ten Hour Day

UK schools are to be transformed into learning and community centres serving the needs of hard working families said Ruth Kelly, the UK Education Secretary, as she announced the biggest overhaul of the school timetable for decades. Teaching the curriculum and preparing children for exams will be only part of the wide-ranging services every school will be expected to offer from 2010. They will open their doors early for breakfast and provide after school clubs and child care until six in the evening. The premises will no longer be used for 39 weeks a year but will stay open to provide child care in school holidays
