No year round school schedule. Lousy idea. Some kids have jobs during the summer or other activities which can only be done in the summer. Try polling all the school students and see how many would go for this lousy idea. They are the ones who would be sitting in a classroom in JULY. Lots of older children in this area are from farm families and are needed to help on the farm during the summer. This might work in a big city not here. The majority of people would never go for it.
I think year round school is a great idea!
I have spoken to individuals who have taught and/or attended a "Year-Round" school. The responds from them is the same, they "love it". What most people don't understand is that with a year-round school you attend school the SAME amount of days as a tradition school. The difference is the way the school calendar is divided up. An example of a year-round school calendar would be something like in school 9 weeks then off 3 weeks.
I think a year round school schedule is a very stupid idea and whoever came up with this surely has never been to school and does not have children in school. children need a break to enable them to rest and prepare for another year. So do teachers. They practically go year round anyway. _______________
I think a year-round school schedule makes perfect sense. There is really no benefit to children having 6 or 8 weeks off in the summer.
How do you feel about beginning a year-round school schedule for Yancey County Schools?
