Elementary is fine and understandable. However I had no problems keeping myself busy at elementary school, and I went to and from school alone from day one.
I'm not sure how keeping them until 5 pm would help. It seems to be more like a headache to me.

If you want to improve schools, terminate the thing called "tenure". I heard numerous stories about teachers that don't care at all because tenure gives them immunity to to being fired. I wonder how different it would be when their job is at stake.
