When U.S. President Barack Obama said that the challenges of a new century

demand more time in the classroom, he intended to say that U.S. schoolchildren

don’t spend enough time in the classroom. Obama believes that this puts them at

a disadvantage when compared to schoolchildren in other countries.

Obama is lucky that most schoolchildren are too young to vote, as they would

not likely reelect a man who supports more time in school and shorter summer

vacations, with children staying in school almost until suppertime and enjoying

only eight weeks ’ break over the summer instead of the 10 weeks U.S.

schoolchildren currently enjoy.

If schooling is measured in terms of instructional hours per year, U.S. students

receive more than many students in Asia. While U.S. children spend 1,146 hours

in the classroom per school year, children in Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong

officially spend 903,1,005 and 1,013 hours in the classroom, respectively.

Taiwan outpaces those three with a score of 1,050 hours spent in formal schools,

but that is still nearly 100 fewer hours than of the U.S.
