Last but not least how important is extending the school year! Is this really going to improve the student’s academics or is this going to make no change. Introducing change that can affect the students in positive way that can lead successful and all it takes is for the students to do year around school. That is year-round school; “is when schools operate on a 180 day system, yet they spread these days out across the year with shorter breaks between each term as opposed to a longer summer break. In America, schools typically operate on a 10-month system as established when the United States was still a largely agrarian nation.
The most common thing for students to do while over the long summer break is to forget all of the materials they learned the past year. With YRE schooling, that can all be prevented. Students will tend to retain more information over the shorter breaks. For example, “Children are benefited academically due to the short breaks, as there they don’t have to re-learn the old ... ... middle of paper ... ...on should switch to a year round schooling system and therefore, students generations from now will benefit from the new and improved schooling system.

Also, most Pennsylvania public schools start early in the morning at like 8:00pm and end 7.45 hours later on” In a public school a teacher teaches usually from August to June, with summers and holidays off.

Would you consider going to a school where you learn year-round? Maybe this would be your ideal school, but, when would you get to have some time to go to summer camp, or get a summer job, or play a sport with games during the day? Schools with the traditional schedule may actually be a better choice, and not just because kids love summer break. Schools should have a traditional school year schedule instead of a year round schedule because there isn’t a significant difference between the students’ performance, and year round schedules make planning family vacations hard, make the teachers’ job more difficult, and are more expensive. Also, having a summer break allows kids to participate in activities that they would not be able to do on a year round schedule due to the shorter breaks.
Year-round school, also known as a “balanced calendar”, is a new idea that is being brought up all over the United States. When most people hear the term “year-round school” they often think that school will literally be all year. In reality, year-round school is still the 180 days that a nine-month school year would be. The 180 days are stretched out through all 12 months of the year, and student get frequent breaks throughout the year. Schools that decide to use a balanced calendar have the option of how many days are spent in school and how many days will be spend on break.
