Schools should open for up to 12 hours a day to improve results among white working-class children who suffer from an anti-education culture in the home, according to MPs.

The prolongation of the working-day… forms the general groundwork of the capitalist system…If the labourer wants all his time to produce the necessary means of subsistence for himself and his race, he has no time left in which to work gratis for others. Without a certain degree of productiveness in his labour, he has no such superfluous time at his disposal; without such superfluous time, no surplus-labour, and therefore no capitalists, no slave-owners, no feudal lords, in one word, no class of large proprietors.
