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
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.
They had a few classes in the morning and then it was time for lunch. If the weather was nice, the children ate their lunches outside and played when they were finished eating. When it was rainy and they couldn’t go outside, the girls would play hot potato with a rag and the boys would stand near the big, round stove at the front of the room to keep warm. When they got
Now things are changing. Schools are starting to adopt a block schedule, which is 3-4 periods a day and an hour and a half per period. Although the block schedule provides more time for students to complete their work, this type of scheduling does not truly benefit learning due to the issues students have when school is missed, retention problems, and students limited attention span. Admittedly, 90 minutes provides students an immense amount of time to complete their work to avoid homework; however, studies show many more problems arise due to absences under the block schedule rather than under the traditional schedule. Making up missed work is difficult enough as it is.
And he was asking his mother why he couldn’t go but that’s the only school he wanted to go to. The reason I say this challenged my thinking is because it limit kids when they same they can’t go to this school or that’s school. Kids want to go to school they are happy at and if the little boy went to school in his district he wouldn’t be successful. Because he wouldn’t have the drive to go every day to be successful. The thing that surprised me was that the president of the school system stated that he send his five year old daughter on a bus to go to school a hour away from the house.

No Year-Round School No Year-Round School Mrs. Shackelford By: Keira L. Opinion Writing #2 In my opinion, I think should be no year-round school. Do you think there should be year-round school? If you don’t you better listen because here are some reasons why I think that. Some parents think year-round is not good for some of their children because they at least need a No school days otherwise than longer breaks. Some of the parents question how the school year continues but they have longer breaks and don’t have any no school days.
The most obvious downside of year-round school is the effect it can have on families. So If you have a year-round school you won 't have time to see your family. (According to The Pros and Cons of Year-Round School) Students in year-round school may miss out on opportunities to spend time with children of other ages and learn about nature, as typical summer camp experiences may no longer be a part of the childhood experience. So you miss out with friends and nature so summer camp won 't be part of kids childhoods anymore (According to Facts to Help Parents Identify the Pros and Cons of Year-Round School) And the time off was not implemented to accommodate contemporary concerns, like children needing "down time" to decompress and "be kids," but was born out of economic necessity. So having traditional schooling kids get three months off for being a kid.
Do you or someone you know feel extremely tired, depressed, or sleepless when going to school? It seems that you're not the only one because many people around the world suffer this issue due to school start times. “Over 2/3 of teenagers and children do not receive all of their sleep requirements” (Yeager, page 1). Many questions are surrounded around school start times and how much it affects the student. Does school start times affect the students sleep in any way?
This may require special efforts to keep in touch with parents, such as an evening phone call, home visits, parent-teacher dialogue journals, arrangement of?transportation and child care, or events scheduled on Saturdays (Barbour, 2012). There are also not many opportunities for the parents to be involved in school activities throughout the year. Part of the reason for lack of parental involvement in school activities would be the timing of such activities where parents finds it difficult to absent themselves from work. Plans could be made at the end of the year for such school activities for the whole of next year to be given to the parents so that they can plan their work in advance and join in the activities. As quoted by OECD (N.D.) the overall findings from parenting programmes indicate that: parents feel more secure in interactions with their children, boost their sense of well-being and benefit their children (Diamond and Hyde, 2000; Scott, 2003; Sylva et al., 2004); parents increase self-confidence in good parenting, particularly for poor families (Epstein,
The “traditional calendar” has been used by schools for many years; maybe, it is time for change. Whether schools in Florida should switch to a year-round calendar has been a debate of increasing interest by students, and counties across Florida. Schools in Florida should switch to a year-round calendar, because it decreases student, and teacher burnout, and the amount of time spent reviewing. Although the traditional calendar allows for easier scheduling of extracurricular activities, the increased review time, burnout, and lost knowledge just isn’t worth it. That is why schools in Florida should switch to year-round school.
Students that are in school during the summer find it harder to concentrate on the work that they are doing in school because they are waiting to get out of school into the nice weather. Year round schools make it difficult to learn with many breaks that they are given which can affect them negatively in and out of school. Year round schools should give long breaks instead of many little breaks because it is shown that there is no difference in learning between year round schools and traditional schools. During 2011-2012 about 3,700 schools were all year round schools and these schools didn’t benefit students and teachers in all good ways. In 2007, a study by Ohio State University found that there is no learning differences between a year round school schedule and a traditional school schedule.
Moving to school- sometimes children who move to school can cause a level of anxiety, this can affect their behaviour and relationships with others. It could lead them to lose their appetite and become be clingy towards parents. This will lead the transition to be more difficult and stressful for parents and children. And cause lack of interest and concentration at school, causing development to fall behind. Starting nursery/ changing rooms- This also becomes a stressful time for both children and parents, especially if it’s the first time the child has been left without main carer for a long period of time.
On the other hand, homeschooling has some negative aspects as well. Some homeschooled kids lack social skills since they do not have the opportunity to interact and form bonds with kids their own age. Besides, it is hard for a home to be as well-equipped as a regular school in terms of space and having the right equipment necessary for classes, labs and sports. Furthermore, it required for one of the parents to stay at home, but in today’s economic, it is hard since in most cases the family need two incomes to
Whether Florida should go to year-round school is a new topic. Schools should not go to year-round school because teachers may not be able to find a babysitter and teachers don’t have time to tidy up. Even though year-round school helps kids remember what they learned schools should not go to year-round school. First teachers might not be able to find a babysitter for younger kids. According to “ Scholastic.com” it states “it can be hard to find a babysitter for two weeks every six weeks” (Scholastic.)
