Debate on Breaks
Throughout the year we get many breaks off from school. Some can be as short as a day or as long as ten days. The longer ones are fall, winter, and spring break. These vacation days are to let us spend time with family, enjoy the holidays, wake up as late as you want, and relax from your school life. All three of these breaks last about a week, and of course there is also summer vacation which lasts two and a half months.
What I wonder is why do we have week long breaks through out the year and once the school year is done we relax for two and a half months? There is so much of a difference in between that kids forget half of what they learned the past year, and when we have the week long breaks it feels to short to enjoy. Even when we do have breaks we get homework, so how are you supposed to enjoy time off with homework? It's just like having school at home. My cousin who lives in India has a month long break for winter and summer and shorter breaks in between for other holidays. Which break combination do you think is better for our education and our time to enjoy it? Please answer my question in the form of a comment.
