I believe that it is to much learning for kids It is bad for kids and teachers need time of from school and other needs. Kids all over the world have been mad about this for a long time.
Summer is fun and people don't know how fun it is for kids. We get to swim and play with friends. It is a terrible idea because having summers off is very fun. Summer is a great time to go on long vacations with family and not having to worry about falling behind in your school work. That is especially bad for high school or collage students who would like to go home to visit family for longer than a few weeks. More so if there family lives far away.

Year round schooling is better than having summer break because during summer break most kids get homework. They cannot enjoy their vacations without worrying about finishing their numerous loads of homework. With year round schooling kids can enjoy themselves on weekends with little to no homework. With school, the amount of homework is moderate to no homework a day.

The topic of year-round school promotes many ideas that could help students with their school work. However, year-round school would bring more harm than good. A few examples are the cost to keep the school running, vacation time, and conflicts with the faculty members.

There are many reasons why year-round school causes more harm than good. The budget now is hard enough to keep up. With year-round school, the budget will go up with the cost to provide food, utilities, and other things that are provided for the students in year-round school. The money would then have to come from higher tuition or the loss of extracurricular activities such as band, speech, etc. With the loss of these extracurricular activities, the school would then lose money that the activity brings in.

Another example of why year-round school should not be implemented is the loss of vacation time. Year-round school vacation time is spread out to all the seasons. This would provide more business for vacation hotspots and students would be able to keep up with their work since they do not have to miss school while on vacation. However, since vacation during year-round school is not very long, long vacations would be cut short so the student can go back to school. Since year-round school vacation time is short, students will not be able to get summer jobs because they will still have to be going to school and will not be able to work during the day.

With our current school schedule, the school administration has time to introduce new teachers during the summer. The teachers and faculty have time to plan for the following school year with project ideas and homework assignments for their classes. The teachers are able to do this and be able to go on vacation with their families during the summer break. If the school board implemented year-round school, the teachers would not have time to go on vacation because they would have to do school work so they can keep up with the schedule. This would be a problem because everybody needs a break from school, even teachers. The only difference is they get paid. But doesn"t everybody get to the point where they need a break from work? With year-round school the teachers would have to work throughout their break and would never get a true vacation from school.

Year-round school has a lot of benefits that can make school better for students and faculty as well as vacation hotspots. However, year-round school causes many problems and the cons outweigh the pros.

I enjoy summer!!! You can take summer camps!!! Kids should have an experience of childhood. Year round school is HORRIBLE!!!You need some time to get your head out of stress. Students would get angry if there is year round school. Most students would probably want to drop out. Students should get a chance to enjoy summer!! Enjoy Nature!! Get stress free. And the teachers would have to do more work. grading papers etc... So NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!
