Should school be year-round with no summer break?

  • I have 10 reasons.

    1. There is no homework.
    2.The summer break system was designed for poor families who had factory worker kids that needed time off.
    3.Summer break is too long studies have shown students forget because the brain is a muscle that is becoming flabby and unused.
    5. Students receive more personal attention.
    6. The entire books are covered instead of sections.
    7. Placement and advancement are based on intelligence and application instead of age.
    8. Bullying happens less in year round schools.
    9. Relationships with teachers are stronger in year round schools.
    10. You get to choose your vacation.
    11. You still get holidays off.
    12. I could do this all day.

  • Yes it should!

    18% of kids in free lunch go hungry over summer. Thats 4 million people. The american egucation system is falling behind.66 percent of teachers spend 3-4 weeks reteaching. 64 percent of kids play video games then playing out side. If you need more evedenc ok i will find more ok.

  • Benefits for low income families

    Studies have shown that low-income families have benefit the most from year - round school. Part of that has to do with kids can retain information easer the other part is that it helps troubled children stay out of trouble. While wealthier families can afford baby-sitters and summer camps; low income parents have to leave their children home alone and unattended while they go to work. Year-round schools keep children in books and off the streets.

  • Give me a fifty week school year in America!!!

    Sure, summer break is okay and all, but what if we were to abolish summer breaks and have a fifty week school year? It could help for many reasons. The primary reason is because children will suffer the "brain-drain" of summer. We don't want our children to lose what they learned during the school year. Also, many parents/guardians may not afford to take the summer off. So what should we do to keep the kids occupied while the adults are at their jobs? More school (especially in the summer). A third reason is the notion of having kids join a gang during the summer. Another important reason is the rise of childhood obesity. I'd rather see my kids attend school for fifty weeks than sitting around the house all day, watching TV and eating junk food. So let's get rid of gangs and obesity and stick to a fifty week school year, America!!!

  • International baccalaureate systems helps them in relaxing.

    The common belief on which parents argue that their students should have vacations for them to relax. But i believe the international baccalaureate system burdenize them less because they don't give as much home assignments and teach everything in the classes so that they don't have to do much learning at home. They have concept based questions in their tests. So probably they have enough time to relax.

  • Summer break is too long.

    Most families are not millionaires. And especially the ones living in the city, both parents have to go to work continually during the summer break. I suggest school should be open this period but less studying, more fun stuff and activities, so the students could enjoy more outdoor at campus, with their schoolmates, and even learn more interesting things.

  • School year round would make it less stressful and give us more time for learning.

    Have you ever come back from summer with a laid back feeling and then get your first homework and be like, what? Everyone hates review so why not just get rid of that and just come back from a small break and carry on learning the same thing. We would also have the same amount of break, just more spread out. We wouldn't forget everything over the summer. Overall, I think that we shouldn't have a summer break.

  • Umm, of course NOT!!!!

    Kids would hate school. That would make them anger all the time and they would be soo disrespectful to their parents and teachers! They would refuse education, and probably prefer the criminal life! They would consider running away from home! They would run away from school. That's why I think we shouldn't have year-round school.

  • Then kids wouldn't like going to school

    Kids like going out side playing with friends all summer not stay in and learn all year and parents need time to get there kids ready for the next school so they can get there supply's and some kids like to spend with there family and maybe they would like to go out of town

  • Really bad idea

    If school was all year around that would be horrible. Kids woude have to work and feel trapped in school. Summef and winger break is special time for family and fun and now they are taking i away! Kids whole life will be school and they wont have time to explore because they would be trapped with uomework and teachers . If they were no summer or winter breaks it would ruin kids life.

  • Students need A BREAK

    Schools should have a long summer break instead of multiple breaks throughout the school year. In order to take time off from school and focus on extracurricular activitys it is essential that their is a summer break. Although some people might like the idea of having multiple breaks throught the year, the summer should be spent for relaxing and playing sports/ recreation.

  • Um... Of course

    Kids need a break from all the stress of school life. Kids need time to get away and just well, be kids! Yes education would be higher but our schools would have kids children upset with the schools' system. Also our school system is sometimes updated so a change like that would make our children miserable. My daughter heard of a school that ended in December and she was sad for the kids

  • We Need A Break

    Students need a break to relieve stress.
    They need enough time to rest to get ready for next year.
    It is too hot to think during summer
    we get sweaty when it is hot and classrooms will start to smell
    people need a time to see relatives on long vacations
    summer gives teachers time to train and get ready for the next year
    doctors believe children need a nice long break

  • We need a summer break

    Without a summer break parents and kids wouldn't get as much rest! That's why we need a summer break. Without one, kids would be bored out of their minds sitting in school rotting away. In summer you shouldn't be in school you should be outside in the warmth relaxing, not sitting their with your books open and writing it's not meant to be like that and it never will.

  • No no no!

    My gosh! I just had a two week holiday, but even then i didnt feel fully rested! Honestly, by the time the school year ends I'm exhausted! Kids and their parents too need a break! If we had no holidays, even if we just took away the summer holidays, we'd have no time to go on trips, go oversees, and see relatives. Sometimes the weekend just isn't long enough! Taking away the summer holidays would HUGELY hinder students' performance, they'd be tired, stressed, and miserable. If you really want your kid to do work during the holidays, then if they are willing, send them to holiday tutoring programs. That way everyone gets what they want: the people who want holidays get them, and the people who dont, dont.
