Year-Round Schooling: A great idea? Or a horrible one?

Have you heard what both sides have to say? 

Here is a breakdown of the most common arguments on both sides of the debate…

PRO Year-Round Schooling

• Prevents teacher/student burnouts
• Takes less time to re-teach critical building blocks needed for the next level of learning
• Provides more stability for at risk students
• Students still receive the same 3 months break but would have time off in each season of the year

CON Year-Round Schooling

• Could cause scheduling issues for sports
• Lack of AC in the building during summer months
• Siblings at different school levels could operate on different calendars
• Teachers would be unable to keep second jobs to make up for 3 months of downtime

Do you have any points to add? Which side of the debate are you on?
