longer school days and student performance

In the current issue of Economics of Education Review, Cristián Bellei (U Chile) considers whether lengthening the school day increases student achievement. Looking at a change in the length of a school day in Chile, the paper shows that more classroom time increases achievement in mathematics and language. This impact is larger for public school, rural, and high-achieving students.
