According to the OECD summary, "A typical U.S. student will attend school for a total of 8,884 hours over nine years to complete primary and lower secondary education, 1,293 hours more than the OECD average." But the harder you scratch at the data, the harder it is to reach easy conclusions.

Credit hours vary based on type of course (for example, lecture versus lab time). One course credit is generally between 120-180 hours of instruction. This is attending a 1-hour course each school day for a 120 (or 180) day school year. (This is known as the Carnegie Unit .)

This yields a total, by my calculations, of 169 + 180 + 180 hours = 529 hours + 150 in the summer, for a new total of 679 hours. We are told that there is no time for high school students to write serious history research papers, which they need to do to prepare themselves for college academic requirements.

Each school may need to use different strategies, but there are many ideas and best practices to consider. 8,11,14 Schools can Schedule lunch periods that are longer than 20 minutes to account for the time it takes students to get to the cafeteria (or other location where the meal is served), wait in line, pay for lunch, find a place to sit, socialize with friends, and eat the meal.

Don’t worry about the time. Focus on the quality of your study (not the quantity of study). Sure, I know one school advises students to engage in 20 minutes of study per subject every day. Another school recommends 3 hours a night, plus 8 hours over the weekend …

Adults understand the need to relax after a stressful week of work. Tweens are no different. If you've had a very busy week, you probably just want to go home and watch a little television. Your child might feel the same way. Free time allows your child to relax and do nothing, or to do something they've looked forward to all week.

Around four in 10 kids (39%) engage in some kind of informal play or activity, an activity those under 5 do twice as much as teenagers (56% compared to 28%). Reading books beyond schoolwork is still fairly popular (32%)—but mostly among those without schoolwork (42% under age 5). Activities outside the house like extracurricular activities or classes (25%), playing organized sports (23%) or hanging out with friends (22%) are much less common.

For kids and teens, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests caution. Adolescents ages 12 to 18 should cap daily caffeine intake at 100 mg (the equivalent of about one cup of coffee, one to two cups of tea, or two to three cans of soda). For children under 12, there’s no designated safe threshold.
Most children learn to read by 6 or 7 years of age. Some children learn at 4 or 5 years of age. Even if a child has a head start, she may not stay ahead once school starts. The other students most likely will catch up during the second or third grade.
Generally, children begin to babble from around the age of six months and say their first words between ten and 15 months (most start speaking at about 12 months). They then begin to pick up increasing numbers of words and start to combine them into simple sentences after around 18 months.
