School year round?

It most certainly is not a new idea.  There are schools around the country who hold school year round , with breaks coming in 6, 4 , and 2 weeks stints.   Educators have long said that over summer vacations kids regress a lot.     Here in Evansville they spend the first few weeks of the new school year reviewing what they last learned before summer break.

The Lacrosse school district is giving serious thought to holding school year round.

I go both ways with this idea.    There are a lot of kids and parents who by August 1st are ready for the kiddo’s to go back to school.    But many families take several vacations throughout the summer and their summers are booked from the first day out school to the day they go back.   DO we really need the school intruding into our family time any more than they already do?
