Should we have longer summer breaks since we are in school longer than we are out of school?

I say no. Summer break is already three months. It is long compared to other countries. In Germany, Summer break is only three weeks long. Besides, School gives kids a time to hone their learning skills. What would happen if teachers didn't have enough time to teach? Some kids enjoy school, So having a long summer with nothing to do would be like torture, For both them and their parents. Summer break gives kids a well-deserved break from school, But if their break is too long, It will no longer seem like a privilege. School keeps kids off the streets. If summer break was too long, Then the kids might jeopardize their vacation.

Some of us only have a month and a half. So yes it should be longer since we are in school much longer than we are off. We work really hard all year so we should have a longer break

Think about the teachers who barely get enough money to live. What would happen to them if summer break got longer and their pay went down? They depend on teaching for a living. Be grateful that break is more than a month long. Some people have to go to summer school. Besides, If it was longer, Much more people would be sent to camps, And the camps could make their price go up, Etc. Some people also don't get to see their friends all summer long, And it would be devastating to the kids if they had to wait even longer to see their buddies.

If the break was longer then the teachers prices may go up or they may go down. It was their choice to be a teacher and everyone knows that teachers are not well paid. The teachers still chose to pick this job. I'm not saying that we 2 more months off just at least 2 weeks. We have to learn so we need to go back to school eventually and we need a long enough school year to get all of our requirments done. School should be long but we should have a couple more weeks off for break

Do you want Round 1 to be acceptance or do you want Con to give his/her arguments first?
