I think it should because its a time to spend with family for a whole month instead of being away from you family

Con

no they shouldn't a whole month off of school to forget all they have learned and then going back that skips a whole month of important education that may be needed for college,jobs,etc. why would people do that it would hurt people more than help

Absolutely not! The whole month of December is not a holiday. The only reasons why they let out a couple days early is because lots of people travel to different cities, states or even countries and there are other religious holidays around that time, it will be way to many people out of school. Middle schools and high schools have about 4-8 classes and for a student to be out even 3 days is a lot of make up work for them to have to do and a lot of material they would have to catch up on. There is a lot that the we can learn in between those days. I am a student in high school and even though having a whole month off break would be nice, its not needed. I get that over summer vacation, plus when I get back ill be super confused on what anyone is talking about because I wouldn't remember one word of what they said.

plenty of time is given during the "summer break". which in theory should not even be taken anymore, as the original reason was to let the kids out so they could help support their families farms during the peak of growing season. which was essential so they could survive. So unless you have a summer job or some sort of reasonable excuse to get out of school for three and a half months then all the summer break does is encourage us kids to become lazy and lose about a months worth of knowledge.

You would be in school much longer; into the month of June. Al schools are required by law to have a minimum of 180 school days.
