Kids need a break. Just because school is year round, doesn't mean that students will get less of a break. The breaks will just be more spread out. The summer break most kids get is about three months long the year round school break averages out to about three and a half months. Would you rather get 3 months off or 3 ½ days off?
In addition, FEU Diliman might have problems on the shifting with the reasons stated below: ·FeuDiliman has a trimestral system. If they suddenly shift their academic calendar, April to July will be closed in business. ·If no income on April to July, FeuDiliman might increase the tuition fees of the upcoming students to compensate their loss during the months. ·Graduating students might be affected as they will have a break of four months unless they can obtain summer job to make income. ·K-12 graduate students will have a problem on enrolling to FeuDiliman as four months will be vacant.
Do you think school should be all year? Wouldn’t 3 months of extra school time help you a lot? Studies show that more then a third of students forget more than half of what they learned due to this giant summer "break" that is hurting kids and spoiling them. Isn't 3 months of sitting inside is boring? And if you don’t work for so long and just play games all month, it will become a serious problem.
Year round school should not be used in today’s school, because it threatens family plans, teacher and student burnouts, and may become costly. A child’s development is based on different experiences that sometimes can only be experienced through family time and not sitting in a classroom. Many families plan vacations during the summer. Some even sending children to camps that may give them another experience that school doesn’t offer. Some children come from separated families where summer vacation may allow a child to spend time with another
With year round school kids getting longer time off on breaks. At this point in school, there is short time off on breaks. As it is very different than what schools do right now. For example, schools with year round school get much more time off.” For year round school 45 days equals 15 days off or 3 weeks off, 60 days equals out to be 20 days off .The with 90 days equals out to 30 days off from school with year round school ( Dennis). To add on, Schools require 175 days to 180 days of school for regular school.
Boo frequently highlights this issue in her book providing numerous examples. Firstly, free municipal education hardly ever is efficient. According to the author, almost 60% of the public school teachers do not have even an undergraduate degree (Boo 85). Mirchi and other similar schoolchildren are not likely to acquire necessary education that could have potentially helped them and their families to escape poverty. Moreover, they risk learning nothing at all since at public school they mostly “play, take recess, play again, then have lunch” (Boo 85).
With someone in the class rooms the lights will be on so it will cost the school to pay more to have electricity. Also it might even cost the parents more money for lunches. Some of the parents don't have the money to pay for school lunches year round. One other thing that might cost lots of money is water. With students in the school year round there will be a lot more water going down the drain.
This bill should not have passed, the dropout rate had already dropped from 44 percent to 1 percent. The bill sends the wrong message even though it gives the parents the freedom to decide if their child should go to school or not. This is the only upside of the bill but if the parents dropped out then they more than likely won’t care if their own child drops out. All the bill is doing is getting rid of the unruly students and that’s not how to solve this problem(Concord). If the states established the dropout age of 18 then more students would graduate and hopefully move on to get a degree.
The alteration of the school schedule would also decrease productivity in students of all ages. It is exceedingly difficult for teenagers to focus for eight hours at a time, let alone ten. Dr. Iroise Dumontheil, author of research regarding the development of students, declared that it was not due to lack of motivation that students have trouble focusing in school. She stated, “it’s not the fault of teenagers that they can’t concentrate… Adolescents simply don’t have the same mental capacities as an adult” (A. Hill 2010). Accordingly, by asking students to remain in classes for an extra two hours a day, school systems are requesting more devotion from teenagers who cannot focus for lengthy periods of time due to their developing brains.
Also, parents would rather have their kids wear uniforms to school and on field trips to prevent their children from going missing. If a student did not have a logo on their shirt and they went missing, then no one around them would know where to safely return them or where they came from. These are reasons why schools should wear school uniforms because they provide safety. It has been argued that school uniforms do not increase one’s learning level. David L. Brunsma, PhD, Professor of Sociology at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), co-authored a study that analyzed a national sample of 10th graders and found "no effects of uniforms on absenteeism, behavioral problems (fights, suspensions, etc.
