• 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.

  • The people voting NO do not understand.

    Almost every single person who voted NO believes that year round school is the same except it has no summer vacation. This is entirely wrong. Year round school have the same amount of days off, but they are scattered all throughout the year instead of one big summer break. This is clearly better. What is the point of wasting an entire summer and then when school starts there are hardly any breaks. If the breaks are scattered all throughout the year, school would be much less stressful since students will never be bombarded with work and have no breaks. Summer vacation goes by way too fast and once its over school gets twice as hard as it would be in a year round school. Not only are the breaks much better, but year round schools are likely better for learning.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Stress Stress Stress!!!!!!!!!

    Well im in school and i 8 classes a day imagine that much homework year-round. Even if we had much more mini breaks homework comes in and ruins your break. This is why school year-round is not good. I can't even enjoy weekends because every time I turn around a project or report or homework smacks mein my face.

  • School is too long and exhausting already,

    I being a student, i can tell you that school is the root of stress in my life. If school were longer, that would mean more learning, more homework, less sleep, and less break. I honestly would result to quitting the public school system and going into homeschool. And little breaks wouldn't even matter though, a year of school would still mean more work.

  • No there should not be year round school.

    Kids should be able to go outside and play in the summer not sit in a classroom. Kids should have more freedom and be able to play. Teachers would not get a break also. So Nobody would get a break. I say no to year round school because everyone would lose.

  • Not just students are benefit.

    Not only it benefits the students to not have school year round, the teachers are also affected. Like students, teachers also need time to get away from work, especially in schools like ours since the teachers are away from their family. We’re not the only ones who finds it tiring at the end of every weekday, we’re not the only ones who enjoys a big get away from school. If you think about it, school might be even more stressful for teachers and staffs, since we only see the product of their lessons we think that their job is easy, but we only take the information in while they have to figure out the most affective way out of many to get us to learn faster.

  • I say no

    Kids need a vacation from school. They need time to relaxe and cool off. They also need time to not think about Math, Science, History or any thing else school related. That is why I think Schools should not be year round. Kids do not like school why would they want more

  • I say 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.

  • 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
