ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze parents perception on Five Day Schooling System and theeffect of Five-Day Schooling System on leisure activities, using logit model, ordinal logit model,multinominal logit model, and tobit model. This study surveyed 13,936 parents at elementary, middle, and high schools in 16 Local Educational Offices. The study finds the relationship betweenSaturday program participation and characteristics of students and families, and demands of studentsand parents. As the income level lowers, the participation rate of students in Saturday programs falls. And as the demands of students and parents are not reflected on the programs, the participation ratesand the satisfaction level of students decrease. When students participate in Saturday programs,parents work on Saturdays, and income levels are lower, leisure activities and family trips are lesslikely to happen. The measures which reflect the demands of students and parents on Saturdayprograms and provide students from low SES families with financial supports should be discussed andintroduced.
