An issue that is hotly debated is if there should be year-round schools or not. Some people think year-round school is beneficial, but there is evidence why there should not be year-round school. The first school was made at 1635 and there has schools that had the full summer break since then (“First Public School in America”). Since schools have been successful with an full summer break till now there is no need to change to year-round schools. There should not be year-round schools because it disrupts events in the summer, cost more money, and messes up schedules.
Growing up, for most people, going to college is not an option- its an expectation. In our society, going to college has become a fundamental part of our education, becoming an adult, and for most people just simply part of our lives. However, as people grow up and experience reality, the realization hits that college may not be as simple as once thought. As much as attending college is expected from the majority of young people, dropping out of college is not. Even with the idealization of the college experience, some students are forced to cut their education short due to a plethora of issues.
When I come to school, I am given work that will overwhelm other average students. I am able to handle it, but the effect all the extra work has on me and my classmates are obvious. When the school year ends I use my summer vacation to recover from the tiring year. The feeling of relief rushes through me when I can wake up and not have to get dressed for
Studies show that 72% of teenagers have either extracurricular activities, or work in the evenings after school. Teenagers enrolled in such activities are usually out later than teenagers who are not. Some people believe it would be a good idea to apply a 10 pm weekday curfew and a midnight weekend curfew for teenagers in order to keep them out of trouble, while others believe that would unfairly intervene in young people's lives. A 10 and 12 o'clock curfew would not be a good idea to place on teens, for it would disrupt their evening activities. One reason a curfew would be a bad idea is because not all teenagers are up to no good.
One con is summer vacations and activities will be interrupted. So when families have long vacation during summer you would be missing school. Also teachers will not have a large block of time to prepare for the new school year. A bad thing too is if families have multiple children and put them in different schooling there schedules will be very different and may involve in complications. A problem that may come from that is parents might transfer their kids out of the district.
Non-athlete students don’t get paid to do their school work. These kids are college athletes, they are not professional athletes so they should not be paid to play. These students should be focusing on their school work and their sport that they play. If these athletes were to get paid, they may focus more on the sport than the actual education they are being
College educations in America are simply not needed. In the US, people everywhere are going homeless because of the student loan debts that they have because the population cannot create enough well-paying jobs. A college education isn’t as valuable as society says it is. When high school seniors choose to not go to college, it frees up so many jobs for people that have college degrees. For example, when a senior in high school goes to college, that can wreck another person’s dream of becoming an accountant, for instance.
One reason why there shouldn’t be year round school is because kids need a break from school. Summer gives kids a break off their brains. A longer summer would let kids do what they want and time on there own. Lots of kids have to get up really early for school and so when it’s summer they can sleep in and make up for all of the time that they had to get up early for. They can’t make up all the days of getting up early in 2-3 weeks
For some players a $20,000+ per year tuition is not enough, they want to be paid with more than just a scholarship. Many argue that they are putting in extra work that other student aren’t having to do, but that is the reason they are receiving free education. As college sports can be challenging, student should never receive a paycheck because they are already being given a scholarship, no debt at the end of four years, and also college sports were never meant to be used as a career.
Most students enjoy summer vacation, but some educators feel that the summer break is too long and that students do not retain information as easily when they return in the fall. Some people argue that there should be year-round schools, where there would be a 3–4 week break in the summer, a longer winter break, and a week off in the spring and fall. Does this sound like a good idea to you? Why or why not? Take a position on the issue.
