This article examines the merits of proposals to increase the length of the school term. In reviewing studies of school time and learning, the article points out that there is considerable variation in how existing time is used and that inconsistent effects for time are often found. The research evidence is therefore argued not to support increases in the school term as a means of increasing student achievement.
