Year Round School? I’ll pass

I’m doing some reading for a grad class I’m taking right now and one of the topics is that of year-round school.  I’m never a big fan of using “It’s always the way we’ve done it” as a reason for continuing to do something, but that reason is good enough for me in this situation.

I think it would be one heck of a hard sell to have students come to school in July and August.  Even if we give them vacation spread throughout the year, I think it’d be awfully hard to get them to refocus and get back into the swing of things (it’s hard enough in September)!

Thanks, but no thanks to year-round school.
