How Students Spend Their Time

School accounts for just 14% of students' time, yet we make teachers responsible for 100% of students' education. And children spend 33% of their time sleeping. That leaves 53% spent on "other." It is critical that during the 53%, parents are reading to their children and talking to them, making sure they go to school every day, and stressing the importance of education. Schools can't do 100% of the work in 14% of the time; they must have support from the home.
