District Variations In Length Of School Days Add Up

Thanks to a friend for sending me this chart from yesterday's Fordham confab, which shows big variations in school day length and, to a lesser extent, number of days a year that students are in school.

As you can see, New York comes in at 1271 hours of instruction a year, while Chicago comes in at 1001 -- or about 40 days of school (or 8 weeks) less per year for the Windy City.
