First, with an earlier start time there is more daylight for sports, allowing for longer practices. Second, Cline (2011) writes that a later start time can impact hours for after-school jobs; which are necessities for some students saving up for college or buying their first car. Third, “Starting the day early means more time for after-school tutoring and that student-athletes miss fewer classes to travel to after-school competitions” (Anderson, n.d., para. 2). An early start helps to ensure that a student or student-athlete can get help on a topic that they struggle with.
Summer break is the perfect time to try out a new sport, pick up a new hobby, or master a new skill like braiding or gardening (Brown). As a student, I believe that kids should try new things and then they might like it. To combat summer learning loss, children can participate in a family book club, reading programs at the library, or just take frequent library trips (Brown). As a student, I believe that kids should at least read one book a week. Counter Argument for Why We Should Have year round school Some people would say we should have summer break.
For example “Barber Jerry” in the article “Year Round schooling really works” states that “The most important advantage of the balanced calendar, where students are never out of school for more than one month at a time”, this grants less time for students to lose most memory over the breaks. While students are on their one of their breaks many people believe students may not be able to work or have contact with teachers. Although it may be a little difficult for students to arrange a time to meet with certain teachers it is very much possible. In fact, students are able to do attend what is called “intermission classes”(Wildavsky) this is alike to summer school which is found in the agrarian school calendar. This is focused for the students that are troubled, or students that are looking for
The freedom from school that comes during summer break or vacation is greatly anticipated by students all over the country. Summer break helps students rest and prepare for the next round of school. Unfortunately, the time to recharge during the summer is disappearing for some students with the rise of year-long schools. While year-long schools have some benefits, they are not advantageous to the student. 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.
While I can see their point, this problem could have a solution that not only would help athletes, but other students as well. To eliminate athletes having to stay out super late and practice in the dark, the last class of every day could be a sports period. For those who aren’t in sports, it can be used for different clubs to meet and talk, and as a study time for those students who need extra help in their classes. With this, the sports teams would be having their practices at around the same time they normally would, just during the school day. For middle school sports, this period could help reduce the need for weekend practices.
I know I am. Not only that, but they are expected to go home and do six classes worth of homework, which doesn’t give them a chance to catch a break from school. How are students supposed to relax and recharge for the next day if they don’t have time to take a break from school? People always say that a person's house is the one place that someone can go to relax, but that is not the situation for students. When students are in school, we
I am a very family oriented person and I am lost without my family. My family is my support system and I try to spend as much time with them as I can. To overcome this obstacle, I will make time for my family. I will do my school work as soon as it is assigned and study for tests in advance so that I can spend more time with my family. If I go away to college, I will make trips on weekends and holidays to visit for as long as my can.
Taking long breaks from education can distract one and may lead to taking more than one year of a break. While taking a break from school before going to college, may cause some people to become young parents, then going back to school will not be a priority because now the main focus will be about their child. I think it is better to go right after high school that way you are not
A lot of the teenage parents struggle to put food on the table or money in their pockets when they drop out of school. If teenagers knew they had the option to take the baby to high school daycare program while they continue to further their education and graduate they would. Teen parents would have a better advantage in getting a better job if they have a full education and diploma. Teenagers might even learn more by putting the baby in the program while they stay in school. The daycare program teachers teach teen parents the responsibility of being a responsible parent.
This helps them find out what they want to do with their life with ease and brevity. The way it would make the transition and overall experience fast is by allowing students to get basic classes done in high school and making it unnecessary to wait years to apply to a college. By letting students get the basic classes done it is then letting them get into more specialized classes earlier on, instead of waiting because they’re schedule is too full. Also by being free, it means students don’t have to work in a low-end job for years to slowly accumulate the funds necessary to pay for
“Part of education is to help students be prepared for jobs, all year schooling allows students to be more prepared for professional work day hours. In the real world, employees do not get 3 months off.“ —Doctor Hawk Because we agree with the statement by Doctor Janelle Hawk, my partners and I affirm the resolution: Year round schooling benefits students, their families, and the community. We offer the following three reasons to support our side. Overcrowding, frequent breaks, and benefits to low income families. Our first reason is Overcrowding in school districts.
Year round schools don’t help students learn more, they just spread out a long break that some people think will improve students learning. Even though year round schools support continuous learning they make continuous learning harder by adding many breaks in between the school year. Year round schools don’t keep the traditional school day and don’t help students learn more. Students that have school during the summer aren’t being real kids. Summer breaks are full of good memories and should be experienced by all.
The only reason people wouldn’t agree would be because they want to spend time with their children, but they will still be able to because year round schooling gives short bursts of breaks about two weeks every other month(Towler). Finally, Year-Round Schooling would be a great idea to interpret and merge into our school . so that we can not just learn more but not be stressed out and forget what we learned the previous year. What they don’t know is that the People around kids need them to go to school all the time not just for education but, also so they may go to work and feed their families. This method of teaching is something that I have experienced when I was a child and I enjoyed learning while taking one week break about every
Traditional school schedules have kids in school from late summer until late spring, the year-round schedule has kids in school all year but the difference is there are longer breaks in the year-round schedule. It is time to switch from the traditional schedule to the year-round schedule because students learn better and don’t lose information over a long summer break, is more convenient for everyone and reduces the stress of school and makes it more enjoyable. To begin students under the current school schedule where there is one long break in the summer are more vulnerable to losing the information they have learned the past year. Summer break causes students to forget material that they have learned which causes problems because it wastes
How does year-round of school, with a few breaks, help students with furthering their education ? A year-round of school with a few breaks will help the students brains regain more information about things they learn in school and makes sure that what they learn is helpful for them in the future. For example, school everyday will help keep the students knowledge they already have stay in there minds, help get them further ahead in their studies, and graduate and be done with school faster. It is most significant that year round of school will help keep the students knowledge they already have stay in their minds. It make them less likely for students to forget what they have learned .One could say that three months without school will
