    We need more days off because then we can hang out with friends and we can't do as much stuff than we can do at home and other places and we can't have as much fun than at home and just sometimes school is boring so i hope people understand

  • Yes i do

    We should because we work to much and our brains hurt and family is really inportant to us and so thats why monday should be a day off just like saturday and sunday. We also can't sleep enough so we are so tired when we go to school everyday so yah.

  • Of course They Should!

    Kids are always tired and not at all refreshed form the weekend. It is all they look forward too all week and then it just flies by. We need three day weekends. It will improve test scores because students will get enough sleep. It will put less stress on them, as well as give them more time for sports and even school projects. So, in a way, it would also help child obesity.

  • Not enough sleep

    We cant get enough sleep sense school started again
    tttttttttttttttttttttttttttthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssssssss is to much time in he day for school then there is sleep uuuu gggg hhhh this is NOT fair at all no sleep and we could end up in the hostpitel with insomnia!!!!!!! NOOO WAY THAT SHOULD HAPPEND! NOPE

  • Too much work

    I already get worked to the bone every day with my jerk of a teacher. I have to help my mom at her job anyway during the summer. But that sure is easier than school. More and more kids are obese which comes from longer school days. Besides, no more jerky boys!

  • Too much work

    We need to have some time to catch up on the school work because the teachers make us learn the stuff so we wont be able to learn them in one lesson nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooo mmmmmmmm mmmm mmmmmm mmmmoooooooooooooooooooorrrreeeeeeeeeee gmrqeghkr fghjhe ihbfe dhjfb khdvf hbvf jdvhf hjbf fb dhfb hfbv hvf h

  • MONDAYS OFF school

    Children don't have enough time to be CHILDREN as the are constantly at school or doing homework
    This doesn't give them enough time to play and just be children anymore and they say school helps out children and yes it does but sometimes there is too much of it agreed ?

  • WE should have mondays off!

    What if our parents was away for the weekend and on Monday we had school and we could not see them but if we had Mondays as a weekend we will see them and spend family time with them!
    And so we can stay up late on sunday night since it was a monday!

  • No, school should be more often.

    Kids are getting further and further behind in school. We keep lowering the standards for a high school education and college degree. This denigration of our educational system needs to stop. The only way to fix this is to make kids go to school seven days a week all year. They are to behind to have any days off.

  • American schools already have an adequette number of days

    In the delicate balance of learning, I think we have arrived at an adequate number of days. Most US schools run about half the year. The extra time is needed for social activities, and reflection on what they've learned. Extra times needs to be allotted for planning and cleaning of schools. Don't fix it if it ain't broke!

  • Student have too many days off from school already

    No, I do not think that student should have more days off of school. The United States is falling behind other countries in the area of education because of our education system. Our students seem to spend more time home playing video games, then actually being in school learning. In the end, I think that we should have more school days to include Saturday school.

  • There is no way!

    Students have too much time off of school as it is. There is no way that more days off should be allowed. Students already get a week at Christmas, a week in the Spring, all the major holidays, weekends, as well as the entire summer. It is a shock to most working adults when they enter the working world and only get one or two weeks off a year. We might as well prepare students early.

  • More Days In School

    I believe we should try to teach children as much as possible before they go to college, or maybe even add college to the standard grades that everyone is expected to go through. Overall, I think it would be better to have children spend more days in school. This would help them acclimate to real life as an adult, when you rarely have summers off, much less a week at some times.

  • School is already too short.

    There's no way I would ever support more days off school. The school year is already too short, to the point where kids forget half of what they learn over winter break, and most of what they learn at the end of summer break. I would actually favor a year round school system.

  • There are already too many days off

    School students get two days off every weekend. They get 12 weeks of school holidays, they get student free days, public holidays and teacher strikes.

    When they go to work they will get maybe 2-3 weeks off a year, work longer hours and so on. If kids get too many days off its going to be a mighty big transition for them when they enter the work force.

  • Less Time Off if Anything

    No, students don't need more days off from school. First of all, if school is going to prepare you for the real world, keep in mind that there aren't many days off when you are working. Also, academic concepts build upon one another, so too much time off will necessitate too much review so that the previous foundational concept is fresh to be built upon. I would be in favor of year round school.

  • Off too much already.

    Kids are of too much already. Supporting evidence? America's mediocre test scores vs. China and India. Can you seriously justify more time off when America's kids lag behind Internationally? How do you suppose America will continue to be the leader of the free world when our children can't even compete with other countries academically.

  • No because students need more time to finish off homework and also need some spare time

    The reason why is because students aren't happy with the amount of work they get given so they need to have time to finis or start homework. They also need this time so that they don't get overwhelmed by the amount of work they must finish by a certain time.
