Is summer break too long for students in the US?
Would lengthening the school year be beneficial to students or add more stress to the student's life?
The summer break is needed in my opinion. It gives kids and teens a chance to explore, learn about themselves, make friends, and do and learn about other things they aren't able to during the school year.
Not only that, everyone needs a break from work. School is work for them and they need time off from it.
Thanks for commenting nmdonders. I agree, but there is also the argument that U.S. test scores should be higher than other countries where students have a shorter summer break. Not sure if more time in school would equal higher test scores for kids.
What is the point of test scores??? anyway??? School should not be that different from summer break! Let the child be engaged from within... Check out Montessori U tube videos to get the point of New Direction Education.
