“As I see it, the debate between summer vacation vs. year-round school glosses over the most important questions namely, how can we bring play back to our nation’s schools?” (Darell Hammond) Year-round schooling would cause many problems if implemented at shattuck because Year-round schooling cost to much money and Kids need free time, and time with family and friends, also If you go to year-round schooling you won 't learn more than traditional schooling. Year-round schooling cost to much money. With the loss of these extracurricular activities, the school would then lose money that the activity brings in. Like With all the activities not being there anymore than they are losing money the activity brings so this is a crime. (JD Smith) And
When a person graduates college with student loans and can’t find a job they have to work multiple smaller jobs to make money and pay off the loans. Then when they find a job they are unprepared for everything they have to do because they didn’t learn how to do everything at the same time in college. Instead of going to college and wasting time and money go to a trade school or get an intern or fellowship first so if you do go to college later on you are prepared when you
This would put teachers in a hard situation and would not give them time to be with their family. This is another reason year-round school should not move to Florida. Lastly, a year-round school schedule may offer more breaks, but there is no proof that it helped students academically. Therefore the year-round school schedule does not truly benefit students or teachers. Also the more frequent breaks may pose the problem of students forgetting information after every break, which would cause for more review in class which does not help students learn new things.
According to Sonny Long, it is difficult for kids and families to transition to a year round school because the schedules are so different. Students wouldn’t have the same schedules as everyone else so it would be hard to schedule. Families have trouble finding days where everyone is off at the same time (Long). Year round schools have many short breaks off when normal schools have a couple long breaks. Kids like going on vacations and year round schooling makes that
So instead of going to college, and having a job at the same, he dropped out. Blevins was more motivated to make money and have a small job than to go to college and give himself and his family a better life. Andy also came from a family that was poor and he set low standards for himself from, “Soon he was making bonuses on top of his 6.75 an hour, more money than either of his parents made.” (88) Blevins was arguably set up to fail from the start of him going to college. Although, his sister Leanna Blevins counters that claim after she came from the same family and was able to eventually get a P.h.D in college. Yet even Leanne Blevins supports the key barriers by telling about key barriers that she noticed and had to get past herself, “But they don’t know that maybe what the student needs is to hear them say, “Stick it out just one semester.
The nation's financial aid system currently fails to provide an equal opportunity to everyone qualified. with high amounts of student loan debts has been shown to reduce a person's chances of owning a home, getting married, having children, and accumulating wealth. The earnings for a full time minimum wage worker is $15,080 at the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Full-time work means working 2,080 hours each year, which is 40 hours each week. A better educated population could result in smarter decision making at every level of society, which could lead to
Critics of the shortened school week point to the fact that children who are at risk, especially those having learning difficulties may not be able to get the most out of the new program. As it might seem, 4-day school weeks would work best for kids who are self-motivated and would not serve the needs of those who do not learn in the same manner. This means a lessened focus, which can cause grades to drop. It also means that there is a higher cost for parents. Though schoold districts can save money with four day school weeks, it is the other way around for many parents.
IRIS RIOS: The American dream honestly to me it means being getting somewhere that your parents weren’t supposed to get to or didn’t get the chance to get to, so it’s kind of it kind of is personal in a sense, I’m trying to get into a place that my parents never got the chance to. WINNIE: In a way like I think my parents wanted us to like have the highest education and have jobs and like not have five kids by the time I’m like 22, I’m 22, I don’t have kids. IRIS: As of right now being in college, my dad dropped out of high school because he though working was a lot better, my mom didn’t get the change to further her education because her step father couldn’t or wouldn’t pay for anybody that wasn’t his biological kids, so being in college is one step, getting out of college and getting my dream job you know and being able to provide for them is another step. WINNIE: They dream was for us to have the best of everything and to a certain extent we have, ok not to a certain extent, we have had like I guess the American dream of getting education, having what we never possible dreamed of, because I never possibly dreamed that I will learn how to drive a car, but I drive a car, I don’t do the best turns but I drive a car though, I never dreamed of speaking English, so like fluently,
They understand the sacrifices their parents have made for their children and to support their family. But, upper classmen might not be able to understand why inequality causes consequences because they do not experience the same situations. Those who earn more do not need to work more hours and sacrifice little things, such as vacations, in order for their children to go to school. They may not even notice any changes to their lives because they make more than enough to live stress-free, while low income families spend most of their time struggling to make ends meet. Although this essay was written about 11 years ago, I believe it is still just as effective as when it was first written because the economy is constantly changing and always leads to consequences because of the inequality present in society.

Being paid with the federal minimum wage that is currently $7.25 per hour is not very amusing to most college students. Not only tuition is the only
Thus, working at an early age and seeing the money in their hands give them a slight tilt to keep on working rather than follow up with their education. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that, “16.9 million persons age 16 to 24 were not enrolled in school. The labor force participation rate of youth not enrolled in school increased over the year” (par. 12). Contributing to this fact, youths would rather work and help their families’ financial problems due to debt instead of pursuing a higher education.

Maintenance can make the adjustments and repairs they may need to make closer to the time the issue occurs. Instead of maintenance waiting till summer break they could fix the issue during the vacation weeks. Proponents may ask why the maintenance can not repair the issues during the day. The problem with maintenance working during the day is the safety of the students and if any harm is to occur to a student then it would be the school 's responsibility. Year-round schooling can have effects on budgets.
