I think the point is not that we should shorten the school days, but we should skip the unnecessary  ...

Most education systems are training more than required manpower but only a small amount of the trained manpower will be qualified to do the required job that will develop nations.

The value of play is not recognised in China. The need for a child to rest, consider and internalise learning is not recognised. The value of family life and social interaction is not recognised. A child's concentration span and the limits to which they are able to recognised. Some Chinese students at the age of 8 years old get up at 6am and finish lessons, mostly in dull classrooms, at 9pm.  Time at home is therefore very limited. Any "free" time at home is taken u with homework and private lessons.  Students have "no life". The concept of lifelong learning and an enjoyment of learning is lost. The system and organisation of education in China upsets me and I have tried in my limited way to make changes. Change in the social areas of China's development is very slow and difficult to achieve. Changes will have to happen if China's growth and power is to continue increasing or be maintained. Such radical change has to come from the education ministry.
English teacher and education adviser. China needs a teaching profession with less fear and more trust and honesty.

It's abusurd that many parents oppositing the long school time are eager to send their children to so many out-shcool classes that their children will suffer more pressure. In my opion, as there is so much neccesary knowlege to occupy, it's beneficial for children to spend a lot of time to learn with teachers in school
