according to wiki its 2 to 3 months. college has a longer break but i think its usually 2.5 months. most of summer.
spreading that out throughout the year can ease the workload and increase the efficency of our students. benefits to parents are also real, but imo secondary.
How long is a summer break? It's not literally the 3 months of summer right?
This is what Europe does....they still have a significant summer break, but nowhere near as long as the US. Stats tell us that they spend less per student and have better results. I can't help but think this may be a partial reason.
The other benefit is, of course, for the parents. Not having to worry about how they'll pay for childcare or having to take off work in order to care for their kids would be a welcome change for many parents.
yes kids forget a bunch of information that they learn over the summer, they could be done school sooner and be off to benefit society, and the real world doesnt have summer vacations so it would teach young ones to prepare for the way life actually is, not to mention it would free up the need to find babysitters throughout the summer
most 10 year olds have no idea what they will need in the future. will they need math? maybe. will they need history? maybe. do you suggest closing off paths for children before they even realize what they will pursue and need?
i dont disagree with what most of the people here said, but year round school doesnt mean more school.
right now we have long vacations where studies have shown students forget alot of what they learned.
what many recommend is the SAME AMOUNT OF SCHOOL, but with more, shorter, vacations so there arent giant gaps of no school and giant stretches of constant school.
No because everybody would be mentally exhausted
school already causes a lot of stress for young people and this leads to the increasing depression and suicide rates. So to make school all year round will be severely detrimental to the youngs mental wellbeing.
school should not be held every day because what if multiple teachers give the child work on the same day the child may feel overwhelmed that's why the teachers have the weekend because it allows the child to be able to do the work at their own pace so they do not feel overwhelmed plus it gives the children time to regroup so when they come inside of the class they are not tired from the work that they just received but they come with a fresh mind and more well-equipped to learn
most of the things that are learned there will never serve us
