Are all year-round schools more beneficial than the traditional schools? Is it true that schools that go all year have a higher graduation rate? Do children learn more in all year schools? Or are traditional schools a better learning environment?

When I say traditional schools I mean where students go to school for 180 days and get three months of summer vacation. The majority of school systems still use this kind of schooling. This gives students as well as employees more than enough time to relax. But this also comes with the ‘brain dump’. Kids easily lose information throughout the summer break so the first part of school is playing catch up. 86% of public schools in the United States work on a traditional calendar. ( According to publicschoolreview.com )

All year round schools provide students and teachers with time to relax and regroup. This helps reduce stress during the school year. Teachers who work for year-round schools said that it gives them a break when they most need it. ( According to publicschoolreview.com )Teachers also get stressed during school, as students do. Studies support this notion, as year-round schools have a lower staff turnover rate. Which means less staff quits.

I personally would rather go to a year-round school as opposed to the traditional school schedule.
