Yes it is. I remember that in my schooling days that I also had hectic schedules plus some extracurricular activities. As of now when technology is rapidly advancing and persons are becoming more competitive, the more rigorous studying will be. The government here in the Philippines is even currently studying a plan which will add up another level on the elementary days. However, that will not be a good idea for a country like us because we are too poor to have quality education, what more if they will add another year, where will the poor people get another year of income just to send their kids to school?
