    Changing the School Year, Whats it going to be?

    If you could change the American school vacation system what would you change?

    Like no spring, long summer, or no winter break and long spring break.
    what would you change?

    i would make all school year round schools.
    I think it would be better if there were more breaks that way the students could get a break from everything. and with the school year being longer the teachers wouldn't have to rush to cram everything in before exams.
    Also they would have more time to make sure the students actually understand what is being taught. This way the students can retain more information that is given to them.

    I know that in Germany they have a different system...one full week of school...and then one feel week of no school..and it goes like that full year around...or something like that....I am not sure...but I think that would be an awesome idea....because that way it would be much more spaced out unlike cramming everything into 10 months period and then getting a long break and the cycle continues......

    Vacations smaller and more interspersed over the course of the AMERICAN school year. I know from first hand experience how much your brain can rot during that 3-month long summer vacation... It's my opinion our school year is outdated... It's design was because most Americans at the time were farmers who needed everyone to work in the fields during the summer, am I right? Or have I gotten something wrong again...

    One week at a time is kinda stupid. One full month of school and then two weeks off would be better. What course or lesson plan can be done in a week?

    I actually think this school system is actually very good as it is, it's easy and oyu don't take enough time off to forget things but you have enoguh time to enjoy yourself, i think it's great and your edjucation is important so if anyhting i would shorten the holidays only because we need the knowlodge these days!

    I think we should have longer summer and winter vacation. Maybe get ride of spring break or maybe not. BUt they should have teachers teach and not cram everything were supposed to learn into our brain. And they should have good teachers that actaully teach not just some hack job they find at the corner or something. Someone who goes over things if no one understands and explains it differently everytime but every student gets it in the end
    I wish a life of a love of a life. Send a light to through the darkest of nights. Let a kiss fly from the heart. Love me like you loved me in our past lives. Send this pain back to me these cold lonely nights. Haunt all my fanasties leave all my dreams shadow yourself once again into me....

    Yep that is why American school system is the way it is. The kids were expected to help their families on their farms in the summer.

    It really is outdated. A year round system with mini breaks through out the year is more ideal for the retainment of the content learned. The three month break causes a lot to leak out.
