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.
Whether it be getting ready for a big game or donating their free time to local businesses to help, it takes energy regardless. If school starts an hour later than it shortens up the amount of time athletes can be at that sport or club. For example, I play football, and if school got out later, then the sun would go down faster, meaning we would not be able to practice as much. Gym space may be a issue too, because the girls basketball and the guys basketball have to share the gym. One team will go after school and the other will come back later and practice.
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.
For high schools specifically, attendance is a serious issue. Students would be less reluctant to go to school if either a Friday or Monday was omitted from the school week. Because of this, students might have an improved attitude at school, which could lead to less violence. Going to school one less day per week would also conserve energy and save money for the school. For students whose parent or guardian drives them to and from school, driving to and from school one less time during the week would save them gas.
School systems should be requisite to retain year long schooling. I know this sounds crazy, but there are more benefits in having a year long school. One benefit is to get more evenly placed breaks in the year; every year, millions of students struggle with the anxiety of going back to school. “Anxiety disorders are one of the most prevalent childhood mental disorders (Ford, Goodman & Meltzer, 2003). There is often a great deal of stress on students because they have been away from school for the whole summer.
Some of the parents question how the school year continues but they have longer breaks and don’t have any no school days. Many believe that shortening school breaks will improve student achievement but still have continuous year-round school. Teachers and students stress is because
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
The biggest thing you could do to make kids healthier is provide more time for activities. Kids only have an hour and a half for P.E. A lot of the kids at school do not even take physical education at all. Which is not good at all, and we barely have outside of school to get our sports or exercise in because every student at school is busy with homework. In conclusion, the school lunches should not be changed because a lot of kids would not eat the new lunches, kids not buying the new lunches means the school would loose money for our supplies, and if you want us to be healithier the easiest thing to do is make more time for
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
Counter Argument for Why We Should Have year round school Some people would say we should have summer break. On the other hand, I think we should have year round school. According to Amanda Morin, we should have year round schools because shorter summer breaks mean students are less likely to incur summer learning
If I chose to play games or extracurricular activities I knew I had to juggle my time of play versus school. If I completed school for the week in the three days then I had a four day weekend, but if I didn 't take care of that schoolwork then that meant I had no weekend and privileges were taken away. By me knowing what my work was in advance for the week, it was my responsibility to accomplish that goal. I believe that homeschool made me mentally and physically sharp because I had more time to run and play in the yard and go to field trips like the space center, the Houston zoo, museums, robotic competitions and horse rescue rehabilitation ranches. As a family we were able to take vacations and trips when most students were in school which allowed more attention on tours at points of interest.
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.
The longer our straight days of learning, the more stress and lack of sleep we would gain. In fact, teens of our current generation need approximately eight to ten hours of sleep a night. Currently, only 15% of this population gets the healthy amount of sleep on school nights. If we shortened the straight days of learning, students would lose stress on breaks, and wouldn’t have to spend three hours a night trying to finish homework. Our brains don’t fully finish growing until we are well into our twenties.
They go the amount of days that the district requires, but stretches it out through the whole year. You can go 3-4 weeks of school, then get 1-2 weeks off for a break. Depending on the school you go to and their set times. For summer break, you can have 4-5 weeks of the break, then go back to school after the last week. This helps us retain what we learned from school instead of losing it over 3 months of summer break.
In the old system, if students were to have an abundance of school days, their summer would be drastically shortened. The year-round system offers a consistent, and rational schedule, with no hidden costs. That’s the thing, the old system seems great until one learns how unstable the whole thing really is. All in all, student would be able to enjoy more time away from school if they participated in year-round school. Though some may say summer break is a much needed time away from school, the facts are clear, all-year school is more beneficial to the student.
