    How long do teachers instruct in your children's school?

    At my daughter's school, exams will be administered the last three days of school.  For the next two weeks, the teachers are preparing the students for these exams.  Where we had lived prior, the last few days of school were more relaxed and filled with end-of-school celebration and activities.  What about your school system?  How much time is focused on instruction during the last week or two of school?

    I am a practicing principal of an elementary school and my expectations for students is that they are learning until the end of the school year...right down to the bitter end.  However, I must say that exams are not the way to end the year either.  There needs to be a balance between continued instruction and celebrations at the very end of the year.  So, I would say, a happy balance between learning and studying hard and time for a little bit of celebration on top of it.  The last two weeks should not be all "fluff" however, testing for the last two day is also too much.  Student achievement scores are not going to be valid when taken during the last few days.

    At my middle school i'm taking Algebra exams for three days of the last week before the last day of school (we have high school algebra at my middle school for advance students; so that's why I only take one exam). And we will be taking that day to relax but, in my other classes we may have up to three days.

    Beginning in the 1960s, my city's public school system ended the fun activities at the end of the school year after kids graduated from 5th or 6th grade, whether it was time to go to middle school or junior high. Our schools never had Junior or Senior Trips, either, from forever to today. The schools in the outlying suburbs sometimes have these activities. since the 1980s.

    I teach at a private school in Thailand.  Just like your daughter's school, exams are administered the last three days of school.  One or two weeks before the exams teachers start helping students review for the final tests.  The final test is worth 30% of a student's grade.
