Year-Round Education: A Better Plan - ... Another was the disruption of summer camps, and the student employment, in which the traditional school calendar does not interfere. In the now traditional school calendar children receive a three-month vacation from school, which results in most cases that children forget plenty of information they had learned the past year. So when they arrive back to school, teachers tend to spend up to three or four weeks reviewing and consequently lose time to learn something new. The National Association for Year-Round Education made a research that proved that students with low income made similar achievements during the school year as the rest of the students and that the achievement gap between those two groups occurred during the summer break (“Year -Round Schooling.”) In contrast with this traditional calendar, the year-round calendar reduces the long vacations....   [tags: Education]

The Traditional School Schedule - The Traditional School Schedule The traditional School schedule is set up so students go to school for 9 months and then have a 3-month summer Vacation. This system dates back to a time when most people's lively hood was farming; therefore, the educational schedule was built around the times of harvest and planting. But in modern day, with so little farmers this schedule is severely out dated. The long break in the summer encourages students to forget knowledge that they learned that previous year, forcing teachers to review information for 4-6 weeks, time that could be well used teaching students new and enriching things....   [tags: essays papers]
