This paper examines the effect of the length of the school year on some educational- and labor outcomes. Using the policy-induced long school year in Indonesia in the late 1970s as a natural experiment, I show that the long school year lowers grade repetition in primary school and increases years of schooling. It also seems to increase earnings and employment later in life.
