No More Summer Break?
Forum Index - Donut Plains - General Discussion - No More Summer Break?
Pages: « 1 2 3 » Link
Apparently, the American government is beginning to consider removing Summer Break. Summer Break was originally so that kids can help their parents with the harvest. With that no longer an issue, will Summer Break end? Post your opinions! Even if you don't live in America, post your view on the matter.
All I'm gonna say is this:

If Summer Break is removed, then the American Government has reached an all time low, and is wasting its budget on education rather than wisely spending on it. With our economy in the state it's in, how can we afford year-round education? We could have during the Clinton Era, but we didn't even consider it an option. Only a select few schools have year-round classes, including colleges.

Where's the article to back this topic up?

Thank god I don't live in amarica.

WHAT?!?!? Kids are going to be upset...
From what I heard, Summer break will be replaced with a 9-week 4-week idea. Basically, 9 weeks of school, 4 weeks off, 9 weeks of school, 4 weeks off, etc.

I actually think that would be a better idea than what we have now. Too bad it probably won't be implemented until after I graduate. ):
I really hope not cause if it ends you don't know how pissed I'll be. D:<<<< I mean everyone needs a long break from school, we have to waste like 6 hours because of it.

look dude, just because you graduated high school before you were 15 (yes, I've read your reality corner thread) doesn't mean other people aren't entitled to an education >:<

Anyway, I doubt the budget would change much. School days themselves would be shorter, and spring and winter breaks a week, maybe 2 longer. Personally, I support this completely, but I know other people won't, so meh.

Also, I still say that these kinds of decisions should not be voted on by adults or congress but by the children :<

I think that's better as well. If i'm correct, that's more days off than we already have.

EDIT: Ninja'd twice.

This.

And yeah Obama is considering this, but honestly I dont think he is going to do this unless he gets his second term otherwise people will get mad and might not get a second term. Therefore this doesnt apply to me so i dont care because I am a selfish bitch.

edit: yeah...I have a link in my sig to help people out with palette editing
...

BUT IM STILL SELFISH!

Okay, so there's 52 weeks in a year.
With the 9 week 4 week plan...

There will be approximately 36 weeks of school, 16 weeks of break.
That means 112 days off school, 252 days of school.
But how is it with the current plan? Will there be more days of school? Less?

Honestly, I think the two months off every summer along with small breaks for Christmas, etc, is a lot less complicated.
But that's because I'm used to it that way.

0_o Summer break better not end, or I'll be |-O.
60% of the time, works every time.



Glad I graduated school already... just need to continue working on my college grades. M daughter howevver... she's going to be upet if they go through wiht the whole "kill summer break" thing. :D

Summer break is the only fucking time I get a break from the assholes that make my life a living hell. No one, and I mean NO ONE is going to take that away from me! Fuck the government. They've already gone down a shit tube anyways, I mean for god's sake if they knew what the fuck they were doing we wouldn't be in such a predicament with the damn economy. Sorry for my foul language, but this just plain pisses me off, even if it's just a rumor.

Argh, I wish they had implemented this kind of system way back here in the Netherlands. It would be ideal for me, I never liked those 7 weeks of holidays, where at the last 3-4 weeks, you're basically thinking 'What am I going to do now?'.

That sucks, I am in 6th grade, and that means I have a whole lot more time in school... I mean the economy is getting worse...
Keep in mind, people, that this is not official. They are only considering it.
Alarmist thread. Talk of this has been around since the sixties and yet every generation scares the kids. Nobody really wants to take summer vacation down, and those who do are quickly overruled in Congress, etc. Additionally, even if by some miracle it is passed, the consequences would soon be so apparent it would be revoked. You don't need to worry, now or ever.
I'd enjoy this, honestly, main reason being I never went outside and got active during summer vacation, and rarely during winter vacation. In fact, I spend most of my vacation time programming.

This describes my opinion as well. The people in my school are idiots, and if this passes, which I doubt it would, well, there goes any happiness I may have had.
If Summer Break is removed...FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Well, it's either 5 days a week and 3 months of summer, or, my opinion, 2 days a week (with 3 free days) and no break at all, your choice
I think it might be better idea, maybe more efficient, and four weeks off every nine weeks wouldn't be too bad.
