  • Summer vacations are unnecessary

    Summer vacations were originally created so kids who lived on farms, which was the majority of kids when public school was created, could help out on the farm during the summer. The majority of today's kids live in cities, so summer school serves no purpose. Besides, when someone spends almost 2 months not using the skills they spent almost 6 months learning, they forget how to use them. While going to school for 12 months straight would likely lead to burnout, having breaks of a couple of weeks or a month would be beneficial.

  • Prepares Students For Life (Especially HS students)

    High School should be an all year option. Students would be more prepared for a real life experience and college preparation for those with that goal. This would also give each student a chance to graduate early. Of course there would be seasonal breaks, winter break and spring break,etc. But no long summer break.

  • Time to see extended peers and cost.

    During summer vacation students and staff have the opportunity to travel sometimes long distances because it is their only opportunity. I was raised across the country and waiting for summer vacation was always worth it. During this time people especially students and staff get to relax and not worry about educational matters. If summer vacation would all of a sudden not exist I know for fact that it would affect not only the kids but the teenager and staff as well. Also, big brands would lose tons of money. For example big brands use "Back to School" as a huge advertisement for customers to shop for their children. Also, the school and districts would have to pay and use more money to educate the kids and to feed them year long.

  • Why on earth!!!!!!!

    Summer vacations help families and friends spend more time together.
    They are nessesary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need more family time together, and summer is practicing for next year, Summer also gives the oppurtinity for family and friends to go on vacations and go to new places, It would be sad if schools are year-long with no summer break :(

  • Summer teaches important lessons, bond with family and year round school is more expendive and can be stressful.

    Over summervkids get summer jobs. This teaches them what it's like to have a job,manage their own hard earned cash and can help with jobs later in life. When you only have 1 to3 weeks from school each month or how ever they do it will not be long enough for kids to attend summer camps were. Summer camps teach kids how to make friends and talk to people so they arnt socialy awkward. Best if all many successful people went to summer camps

    Summer is the time to bond with family. Some families go on car trips across the county learning about them selfs ,their family and the land they Iive in. Family bonds are very special. It's sad when kids fight with their siblings and parents when their older so then their kids never get to know their ants and uncles or learn and bond with their grandparents.

    Year round school can be expensive and stressful. In the summer they half to pay for air-conditioning witch can coast a lot.Think about it having the traditional summer brake you don't get a huge project that's do at the end of Summer. Having year round school you would probably get huge assignments that would take time out of your precious time off. Which would be horrible if you had a big fun vacation plan.

    So next time the bell rings to tell us school is out we stay out

  • There must be a break in it

    Without a break in HS, kids would probably go literally insane and start leaving school without permission. What's more, having a definite time that school will stop give students something to look forward to, and allows them to return to a state where they actually miss school, and are ready to learn upon returning.

  • No, vacations are necessary.

    They allow children to rest, to socialize in their own terms, strengthen friendships, spend time with their family, and to prepare for next year.
    Yes, some parents would prefer having their children in school the whole year. But think about it. If they did not want to have to take care of children, why did they have them? A family with children must take the responsibility of raising them.
