In my opinion, public schools from K-12 should have school year round. Obviously, us students should have at least 2 week breaks. My ideal schedule is to have a two week break every even month (February, April, June, August, October, and December.) If you add up the weeks we would have off, that is about how long a typical summer vacation is.
Another reason why we should have school year round is so the breaks can help relieve stress in most students. If you think about it, we go 10 months straight of school, then have about two months of relaxation. Most students meet with stress in the middle of the school year. This causes the students to get restless, and become less aware of their school work, which causes grades to get lower. But with the two week breaks every two months, it can help students who are dealing with stress, to recharged themselves, clear up their minds, and help them go back to getting their well deserved grades.
You all have different opinions, in which I understand. But you can clearly see why I am for schools who want to go year long.

I think that the way public schools are ran now are fine. Students retain information in school and the only way to remember this information is by practicing and reviewing it constantly. If you're off for two weeks every other month and do not have a set period for breaks, you're not retaining any information if you wish it to be like you word it. Unless you do homework daily you don't retain information. That's why we have summer because it is our break and when we go back we have a pre-test and post-test to ensure we've met the criteria for children our age. The stress can be dealt with as long as you are organized and focused. Kids make the choice to become restless and less aware of their school work on their own, stress plays no role in daily school life's. You get stressed if you know you're going to make bad grades or something is going to be hard. You don't need two weeks every two months to deal with your stress. That's 12 weeks, plus holidays of school off. That's too much and wouldn't be enough to fit the curriculum in. So no, we don't need school year round.
