That 's just no fun. Some people may say that having a four day weekend gives students a three day weekend to enjoy themselves more, but in reality, we are having less of a summer break, we are having longer school days which can cause stress in the long run, and they will have less holidays breaks during the school year. Having less holiday breaks during the school year can impact the us due to not having enough time to bond with family get together on a holiday or celebration. I would love to keep the school schedule the same and so do most kids. In conclusion, We should not have a four day school week due to how much our summer break will be cut down to, how long we will have to stay at school, and the amount of holidays throughout the school year we will not get off like we usually would.
This is due to the fact that many parents have work schedules that do not align precisely with a year-round schedule.

The reasons being, most professional athletes don’t play longer than 3-5 years during their career. That’s a very long retirement and what if you get hurt, it will be very hard to live 50 years in retirement on a 3-year career. Next, it’s not fair to others who aren’t born athletes and have to concentrate hard on their grades to get into a good college. If athletes don’t work hard on their grades, they are just wasting talent. Lastly, if you play sports all throughout your time in school without concentrating on your grades and it turns out you aren’t good enough to become a paid professional athlete, you are left with nothing to help you succeed in the real world.
Again, this is a struggle I personally go through every day. My daughter goes to daycare during the day while I’m at school, but it doesn’t open until 8:30. How could I possibly get to school on time if my first block bell rings at 8:20? Sometimes, if I am lucky, my mom is able to help me and take her to school so that I get to my own school on time. Other days, I have to get a tardy to be admitted into class.

These classes are kind of like the fun summer school classes kids get to take for the traditional school calendar. A lot of students have to focus only on their core classes during school and do not get a chance to take elective classes like art or music .It is good for students to take these more fun classes because it help them interested in school. It is obvious that kids should go to school year-round because they will be able to take fun enrichment classes during their breaks. The third reason why kids should go to school year-round is because teachers need time with their family .

Lots of time at the beginning of the school year is spent in the ‘catch-up’ phase, where students have to relearn or review old concepts they might have forgotten in the summer. This is a result to the problem of “summer learning loss.” Studies done report that students’ test scores after summer vacation decrease by a month’s worth of lessons, which within those scores, the math skills are more negatively affected. Also, students from historically disadvantaged races, such as blacks and latinos are more negatively affected when it comes to learning loss due to summer break. A good way to help combat this problem would be by having year round schools. Students who attend year round schools have the same number of attendance days that normal students have, just the breaks are more evenly dispersed throughout the year.
