When considering the choice of whether, schools should convert to year round schooling or not, the choice should definitely be schools should not convert to year round schooling. A few reasons schools should not convert to year round schooling is because students can even forget something they learned, in a short period of time, and then the teachers would have to reteach the same topic, which is extremely frustrating. The students would also spend less time with their family, because they don’t have the traditional summer break. Not only that, but it causes parents more stress to have to plan ahead of time for how they were going to take care of their children whenever they had breaks (which were very frequent). If this claim is not listened to, teachers teach the same thing repeatedly, family bonds weaken, it disrupts parents work, and it risks the child’s safety.
Year Round School By: Bryan Madden It has recently come to my attention that people want to know if the school schedule should be year round. Imagine your child having a two week break and forgetting all of the information that learned the week before. Picture your kid getting the same work every six weeks.
Have you ever just been so stressed out from school and wish you could just have a break, but winter break or spring break seem SO far away? Well, if you feel like this, year-round school might be a good option for you. Some people believe that year-round school should be required. However, others think that it is not beneficial. Year-round school should be required because YRE multi-track calendars can enroll more students, it increases retention, and stress is minimized.
Attending school on a year-round calendar or a traditional calendar is a huge debate in the school districts across the United States. It is mainly about which calendar is best for the students’ academics. Everyone is talking about whether to keep the traditional school calendar or switch to year-round school. Year-round schooling is moving away from the traditional three semesters with a long summer break to shorter semesters with more, but shorter holidays. Since this is an ongoing debate, there are both pros and cons of having a change happen.
Year Round School Many schools have switched to year round schooling. In fact, there are 3,181 schools in the Michigan. With that 10% of those schools are public schools. Also, many schools with year round school have had high test scores and better rates. In year round school kids are showing more success and more understanding.
Since at least the 1970’s, the topic of year-round schooling has been debated by many people. This new system is spreading across the nation fast, in fact, in 2011-12, there were about 3700 schools that operated on the year-round schedule. (Zubrzycki 1,3). Like any other controversial topic, there are both benefits and drawbacks to the year-round schooling system. For instance, a definite benefit would be that, “...with one group of students always on vacation, a school that was built for 750 students can serve as many as 1000.
One reason why School should not be all year around. School should not be all year around because kids need a break . The electric bill will increase a lot more over the summer. It would be way more kids absent then there is in a normal school year a lot of schools already have a big problem with attends. School all year around would also result in a lot of drop outs because kids will get tired of coming to school.
Yes there are downsides to year round school, but also good things. One thing in particular is how students get frequent breaks. Sitting in school for 180 days is really boring to some. But if every six weeks, a two week vacation would follow.
The most obvious downside of year-round school is the effect it can have on families. So If you have a year-round school you won 't have time to see your family. (According to The Pros and Cons of Year-Round School) Students in year-round school may miss out on opportunities to spend time with children of other ages and learn about nature, as typical summer camp experiences may no longer be a part of the childhood experience. So you miss out with friends and nature so summer camp won 't be part of kids childhoods anymore (According to Facts to Help Parents Identify the Pros and Cons of Year-Round School) And the time off was not implemented to accommodate contemporary concerns, like children needing "down time" to decompress and "be kids," but was born out of economic necessity.
Plus the opportunity to relax and recharge throught the year prevents and teacher getting from exhausted”. Now kids will only have 3 weeks of school during the summer so teachers won't have to review as much. The research from Duke University says that 12 month school is slight advantage “A Duke University study even suggested kids attending year-round schools are at a slight advantage, because they won't forget what they learned during the long summer”
(should kids be in school year round?). When kids get of school they want to relax. Studies show that it takes less pressure of the kids when school is year round. When school is year round you actually get more days of than off summer vacation. Year round school is the same amount of days as a normal school year so really it does not matter.
Year-round school usually has 45 days of school and then a 15 day break. But there is no summer break like traditional school. This leaves teachers with a little over two weeks to prepare for next school year. If teachers have to change their decorations or update their curriculum, they have barely enough or not enough time to prepare for a new year. This would put teachers in a hard situation and would not give them time to be with their family.
Year round school benefit is for a child not to have a lapse in learning or remembering what they’ve learned. That’s when the parents or guardians need’s to step in to continue educational learning. Teachers alone can’t be responsible for the education others need to play their part. Just because summer vacation has started doesn’t mean learning should have stopped. Since year round schooling isn’t what’s normal adjusting could be difficult.
