Year Round Schooling
Debate Rounds (3)
Keeping or showing a balance; arranged in good proportions"
I'll be referring to Year-Round Schooling as "Balanced (Calendar)" ...
I will be arguing that the balanced system increases quality of work and mental health of students.

A state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding"
Physical or mental collapse caused by overwork or stress"
Balanced schooling results in more frequent, short breaks to prevent stress and mental burnout. These short breaks ensure that students' education is maintained and no significant learning is lost during hiatus.
For students struggling in subjects, remediation can and will occur during the school year. This allows them to prioritize and correct difficulties at a more important time as opposed to a later date when the information covered becomes irrelevant.

In regards to Con:
"Even though you get more schooling, time [in] the blazing hot can cause sickness in the immune system. [...] More schooling means less time off to enjoy yourself."
I'd like to first correct you that the amount of learning time and breaks do not change. The only change is frequency and length of individual breaks to create a maintained learning schedule.
Secondly, most classing takes place within an air conditioned facility. Even if A/C is limited, this heat will not significantly hinder the immune system and the humidity required to harbour any true illness would not be allowed the chance to coagulate. For classing outdoors, clothing choice is usually enforced by the nearest authority to prevent anything that might hinder thermoregulation.
Matter of fact, if we're to judge the system on illness prevention, school should only take place in Summer (see: http://www.familiesfightingflu.org...)
