Default Year-Round Schooling: YAY! or NOO! ? - 07-23-2008, 06:39 AM

Okay, I recently found out the governor of West Virginia, Joe Manchin, is contemplating a state-wide shift to year-round schooling. Meaning, we go to school for awhile, then have 2 to 4 weeks off.

DO NOT WANT.

Around where I live especially, the weather is completely unpredictable and to be honest with you guys, I want to KEEP my summer vacation because I don't want to go to school when it's 90+ degrees Farenheight and humid and storming. My school has NO air conditioning whatsoever in half of the buildings, and everybody will be miserable when it hits August and July if school does shift to year round.

Sure, there's all those studies they'll have to do, and probably by the time they decide, me and bro'll be out of the system, but if they go ahead and do a massive jump, what the heck is the high school supposed to do? We just finished getting used to a totally new grading system, completely whacked up period/block system; what'll happen if we have to switch in November?

A lot of people say that with year-round schooling, teachers don't have to cram anything. Uh, wrong! They've got, what, a month to teach you stuff you probably already know, and they end up cramming it all in our heads anyway because there are students who slow the class down on purpose to annoy the teacher.

What's your guys's opinion on this? And I don't want any "OMGLOL YEAR ROUND IS AWESOME" or "OMGLOLO THIS THREAD SUX QUIT BEING PARANOOOIIID" posts. I'm serious, I want the good and the bad of this type of school system.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
