'Strongly' in favor of school year-roundOct 4, 2017 Millie Sargent, Riverton
In response to your question in the paper, speaking as just one mother with kids now graduated, I would strongly favor the idea of having school run all year round.
Families would want some good breaks, but the three-month vacation is a problem in my view. For one thing, I know for a fact that kids get into lot more trouble with the law during the summer vacation than they do when school is in session. This aspect is not talked about.
The many people studying education results say it would help in that area, too. I believe them.
I also think the local police and sheriff's force would like it if these kids didn't have so much time on their hands.
