One idea that some schools have is to have class all year round, but there could be some undesirable consequences if they implement it. A positive effect of the plan has to do with a student’s retention of knowledge. In a school that has a three month summer break, students forget some of the knowledge they had learned. In a year-round school, the students would retain more of their knowledge. They will still forget a few things, but it is not nearly as much as their counterparts who have a three month break.
With hectic schedules, late nights, and the pressure to push themselves academically, it is important that students have summer break to regain their social, physical, and psychological health. Many schools have embraced the idea of year-long education with the thought of increasing test scores, but the benefits of year-longs school may not be in favor of the students. Forty-one percent of all public schools within the country
Some just get tired of doing the same job after a period of time and just want a change in there life. There also people who just like to learn and take classes just for the challenge and enjoyment, learning something new, or they don’t have anything to do and like the idea of spending time learning, there also people that don’t have the confidence or the maturity, and need time to grow a little before attempting to go back to school. Some join the service and travel the world while protecting the country, then retire in 20 years then get out, and are able to go back to school for a free education on some of benefits they entitled to from enlisting in service. These are just a few of the reasons to going back to
If you can transition well to a college environment right out of high school, then that might be the path for you. I believe continued education is the best. Upon graduating high school, students are faced with reality of attending college right away or waiting to try and find themselves in the real world. Those who are not academically nor financially prepared to attend college right after high school will most likely take a break. Taking long breaks from education can distract one and may lead to taking more than one year of a break.

In the long run, summer homework does not accomplish what we assume it does, takes away from opportunities to learn other important life skills that can not be taught in classroom, and greatly reduces all the benefits of a free summer such as enhanced cognitive skills, social skills, teamwork, increased well-being, and many more. Let kids be kids and have free summers! Given all these points, while summer homework may seem like a good way to keep kids brains woking, reinforce lessons learned at school and preserve continuity of education, there are many more reasons why summer homework should be banned. While I realize that some young minds may be dulled over the summer if they are bored, giving summer homework is not an answer. Instead, a small assignment may be in order.
Through hard work and the support of this new teacher, Rose ended up going to college and discovered who he really was. I think this article is about motivation in school, because one teacher and his support changed Rose's life. As for the other students, they just didn't have the aim in life, and that is why they chose to not learn as well as they could and felt that they only wanted to be average.

If you fail, you will go to summer school. This is a commonly used phrase used by parents to threaten their children to work harder. Some think that summer school will raise their child’s grades, but is going to summer school really the best option? Summer school does not benefit students because it cost money, causes stress, and makes less time for friends and family. One reason that summer school does not perk students is it comes with a price tag.
“What do we live for if its not to make life less difficult for each other?” Many of us students struggle throughout High School with parents getting divorced, loosing a loved one, teenage pregnancy, and family issues etc. These obstacles shouldn’t get in the way of continuing with life and furthering in our education and future. No one has it easy that’s why being a mentor for students my age and younger meant a difference in the world. Making it a little easier for students not to always see the bad was my goal. Motivating them to achieve great things and to overcome the obstacles life brings.
