Kamala Harris proposes bill that would align school day with work day, extending activities to 6 p.m.

Senator Kamala Harris of California has introduced a bill that is intended to make school drop-offs and pick-ups easier for parents with 9-to-5 jobs. The “Family Friendly Schools Act” would align the school day with the work day, creating in-school activities that would extend from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“My mother raised my sister and me while working demanding, long hours,” Harris said in a press release, “So, I know firsthand that, for many working parents, juggling between school schedules and work schedules is a common cause of stress and financial hardship. But, this does not have to be the case.”
