It could increase knowledge, but it will cost more money.

  • Sep 10 2011: The main problem does not currently seem to be the length of the education provided, but the abhorent lack of quality in today's education systems. I do not think that an lots of poor quality education would provide anywhere near the same level of knowledge and skill as a little high uality education would.
    • Sep 10 2011: I totally agree with Cutts.

      There is a limit of school hours which makes it different from jail. Referring to cost, it is not expense, it is long term investment. However, the solution lies in improving the quality of education; not the hours.
