All-day School: In Austria, school was usually held both in the morning and afternoon until well into the late 19th century; classes limited to the morning were first introduced in rural primary schools (rural children had to cover long distances to and from school, and were often required to help in the house or the fields) and had become standard at most schools by the 20th century. As more and more mothers are working outside the home, demand for all-day schools has been increasing in recent years. From 1974/75 trials were carried out with all-day classes and day-care schools (no afternoon classes but supervised learning and leisure periods) and both forms were introduced by law in 1993.
