In my opinion the school days are too long... certainly for the primary school students.
The length of instruction can b increased as the kids get older.

School days are far too long.  Actually, it's the parents who insist on adding extra schooling lessons in English, math, science and the arts that contribute to the long day.  12 hours in school is excessive.  The length of years for particular degrees... Bachelor's, Master's and PhD/Doctorate pretty much aligns with Western standards.  Attitudes and approach differs.  There isn't the sense of urgency to marry and procreate in the West as in China.

It's not about school days length . I guess students could graduate as long as they get their credits completed ..but as you can see at colleges in China.. you can see there is few students choose to graduate earlier ..
After all, what I'm trying to say is that in China .. we don't have too much choice at least for ordinary people .. you gotta get your degree and find a job then get married and become old ,that's your life ..

Your title suggests that pupils spend too many hours A DAY at school but the actualy topic is the TO ...

In the west, a person spends the first one third of that person's time benefiting from the nation and the rest returning the benefits to the nation.
This means to work and the west thrives.
Time is the essence but quality should be top priority.
In some fields, theoretical training takes longer time to complete.
Further, the importance of paper qualification out weighs and raise expectations too high for majority.
A balance must be strike to ensure that outcome is round but not lobsided.

You have great insight into this aspect.
Since dawn of Chinese civilization, emphasis on education has received too much attention. Children are told to succeed where parents did not. This is the real pain.

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

Majority of students attend additional lessons after school. More often than not, the same material is repeated. In some cases, new and more diffcult materials are taught. Do they digest well?
No, probably most is experiencing indigestion.
Sad part is parents pour more than half of their combined total income for those additional lessons after class.
