Should all states have a uniform school start and end date in the USA?
Some states start their school year in August while others begin after Labor Day; should a standard, more uniform school year be set in law for the whole country?
No, Some schools are on quarters, some on semesters. Some areas have snow days, some areas don't have snow and every school that is federally funded has to have a certain number of days to receive funding. Right now, we have state and school district rights, why "give away" even more choices to our government? There is such a divide between private and public education already.
I don't see any benefit to having schools all start at the same time. Local conditions such as weather can vary tremendously in different regions, so I think it makes sense for different states and counties to have the flexibility on when to start and stop. I think the important thing is that a minimum education standard apply uniformly across the country, although I'm no fan of standardized testing.
This should be left up to each state to decide and yes I agree we don't need the Federal government involved in this decision.
This is a grand idea but impractical since schools follow state guidelines when it comes to the required number or hours of school days. You see not all state’s could comply with the “one plan fits all” idea because the majority of schools, within the states, have snow days’ while others enjoy much nicer weather during that time of year. Students who have the inclement weather conditions face serious hazards.
In addition, they are finding out that year round schooling is not producing the results hoped for either. In nonprofessionals’ terminology, they would call it “burn out”, which I imagine parents and children both suffer from. I vote for the two-month vacation for everyone!
