• Yes, year-round school is a sound idea.

    If children go to school year-round, it is much more likely that they will retain the information they learn in class, instead of forgetting most of it over the three months of summer vacation. The beginning of the school year is usually spent reviewing the material that students learned in the previous school year, which results in wasted time for teachers, parents and students.

  • Yes

    It should be year round so that students do not have to relearn the information that the learned at the end of the previous school year. A lot of time is wasted in school those first couple weeks back from summer vacation relearning what they did the previous year. Year round school would stop this from happening.

  • No year-round school.....

    I think not because people need breaks. Breaks are needed. Having time with family and friends is better than having school all day. Also we have books that allow kids to study over break. We already have books. So why would school be year-around? We have books and some time to refresh our knowledge. So no year-around school.

  • School should be year round

    Year round school is actually less stressful than having ten straight days of school, because year round school has more frequent breaks. Year round schools follow the 60/20 vacation pattern which would result in more frequent breaks rather than just summer vacation. This would allow students to work hard for 60 days then get a 20 day vacation.

  • Yes it should

    "year round" doesn't mean you're adding more days, in Indiana you need 180 days of school. Having a 180 days would still be the same. Just a shorter summer break and longer spring, fall, and winter breaks. This would also insure students don't lose as much knowledge over the two month summer break

  • Yes School Year Round

    Kids retain more knowledge in year round schools and it is proven that year round students have better grades and higher GPAs. There is the same amount of time for vacation. Kids also have more stress when they are not in year round schools. People would spend less money on babysitters and more money on their kids getting less stress.

  • School should be year round

    I believe that year round will make students smarter. Students wont loose all the information they learned during the school year over summer break. It also lets student see their friends more often but will also have breaks here and there. Many students may not support the idea because they wont like waking up early but I think it gets them ready for their career life ahead of them.

  • School should be year round

    It should be year round because kids like to see their friends all of the time and with them going all year they can. Plus if they go all year they will get a two week break about every nine weeks. Which will result in them not getting burnt out.

  • More school, better future.

    Many argue that school takes out the part of children that makes them children, but in school you can socialize more with other kids, races, cultures, or just other people, not just from your neighborhood. Yes the idea costs a lot, but what of the school had the money? When children learn, they need more than black words in a book and that's where other classes come in. Art, Rec. Classes, etc. can really help too. It's not just learn learn learn, school can be a place , a home away from home if you will, that kids can relate with others of their "kind". This is why I think school should be year-round.

  • School should never be year-round.

    If you take away a student's ability to have a vacation you increase the risk of burn-out. While sure, more time for education sounds good, but what about those things that cannot be taught in school? Without vacation time you take away a child's time to be with their family, to go on vacation, to learn trades outside of school, and to just be a child. Childhood is for childhood things, and it should remain that way.

  • No more school!!!!!!!!!!

    If school was year round students would DIE!!! School is stressful enough now imagine if it was YEAR ROUND!!!!!!!!!! Even the teachers would die!!!!! Students need LESS SCHOOL AND MORE FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!! Yeah it would help them learn more but students will do more bad things to get out of school and lots of people would get in trouble. Say NO to year round school!!!!!

  • Traditional is better

    School is stressful as it is right now, if we have a round school year so many kids will burn out quickly. Think about the extra curriculums that we have, athletics, band, orchestra, drill team, cheer, academics clubs, etc.. That's after school practice and if this round school year were to happen, people would have so much on their plate. You have to think about people that are actually involved in school those are the kids that are gonna suffer the most. Especially in high school, it gets rough at it is and that wouldn't help it one bit especially for the seniors.

  • No school year round

    School should definitely not be all year round. Because school is bad as it is and year round school would result in people getting tired. School is fine the way it is. No need to change anything. Except maybe making it so school isn't stupid. Its not fair to students

  • Kids Need A Break

    Kids need some time off to recharge and have fun. With most schools they only get the weekends and summer off. Kids should enjoy the sun and warm weather. Summer is needed as a break for children. Kids would be stressed out with not being out side as well. Thank you

  • NO, school shouldn't be year round

    Now this is easy. School. It shouldn't be year-round because students could get sleep loss, or even worse, burning out in class. Yes, some classes are actually fun, but the homework teachers give is a big ordeal. That makes it easy for students to fall asleep in class, which might trigger them to refuse to wake and miss the bus or get a tardy. So with that being said, I say that school shouldn't be year-round.

  • We need a break

    Anyways we would learn the same amount and you probably have lots of classes so there is only one time people can have a break.Some people might be stressed to much that they cant take it any more like my child he is crazy about no school in summer.I say no

  • No because it is...

    Because it would put a lot of stress on the students parents and it would be super complicated. I mean who would want school to year-round? Who? The teacher's would get paid more, yes I know, but STILL!!!! We have enough going on in our lives right now. We don't need school to be year-round! Seriously!

  • No Never ever

    No because students should have there time off and shouldn't have to stay in school the whole year.Teachers should be able to get there break to because they have stuff they want to do also the principle should have his/her time out the school.School. That's why school shouldn't be year round.

  • I say no...

    I say no because how are the kids supposed to be kids if they are going to be in school all time. How are they supposed to know what grade your going into if you have school year round what about grades. Also what more would you be able to learn because you cant stay in school forever
