Transcript of Year Round School On the Rise

Year Round Schools On the Rise
Going Year round increase learning&education rate
First, year round schools increase learning and teaching rates. According to the National Association for Year-Round Education, year round schools provide better learning and teaching conditions for students and teachers (http://www.nayre.org/ ). According to About.com, students remember most or all the information they had learned when they get off school to when they get back to school. In year round schools, teachers don’t have to spend classroom time reviewing and teaching the material again to the students at the beginning of a new school year. Teachers can teach students new subject/expanding on subjects learned. (http://childparenting.about.com/od/schoollearning/a/year-round-school-pros-cons.htm ).

Year round Schools gives more students more resources
Year round school increase effort and concentration
Traditional School or Year Round?
Year round schools are on the rise. According to Education Bug, there are 49.7% year round schools nationwide and 3,181 year round schools in the U.S (http://www.educationbug.org/a/year-round-school-statistics.html). Students in both schools go to school the same amount of days, so what's the difference? According to About.com, year round schools have frequent short breaks throughout the year instead of lengthy summer/fall break. (http://712educators.about.com/cs/reformtime/a/yearrounded.htm). Year round schools bring many benefits; schools should be switched to a year round schedule.
What is Year round Schools?
Second, multi-track schedules allow more school resources to more students. Year round schools are separated into tracks to relieve overcrowding allowing more students to gain access to school resources. According to Michelle Bradish, school districts are keeping schools open year-round; more students can fit into existing buildings saving money on construction cost. (http://my.ilstu.edu/~jabraun/students/bradish/paper.htm ) Research also shows that students in overcrowded schools pay less attention, achieve less, and experience more problems. (http://justschools.gseis.ucla.edu/crisis/overcrowding/index.html ). Year-round schools allow more students to have access to more resources.
Year round schools increase learning and teaching rates. According to Elisabeth Palmer at Center for Applied Research, “Students develop a positive attitude about year-round education after one year.” Year-round schools have remediation throughout the year to solve where teachers rush classes to make sure that all the educational requirements are fulfilled resulting students having loss of concentration and decrease of effort from being given tons of assignments. (http://www.ehow.com/info_8080758_yearround-school-advantages-disadvantages.html ). Year round schools let teachers and students do their task with increased effort and concentration.

What would you rather have, traditional or year round schools? According to Buzzle, one argument against year-round schools is that in traditional schools, teachers, students and parents get to spend real time outside the bind of school activities (http://www.buzzle.com/articles/year-round-school-pros-and-cons.html ). However, in year round schools, students are able to take short, frequent breaks throughout the year, allowing them to do more things evenly. Another argument against year-round school is that students would be getting into things, and then a break would come. According to National Association of Year-Round Education, “2.6 months of learning is lost during summer months.” However, in year round schools, when they return after these short breaks, they would be refreshed and ready to pick up where they left off without having to go over the studies again. Schools on balanced calendars out-performed gains recorded for traditional calendar schools.
Conclusion: What do others think about the year round schedule?
People are beginning to accept the year round schedule. According to Education bug, parental attitudes become positive as it continue with teacher acceptance also increasing over time and 82 percent of students were satisfied with year-round schooling.( http://www.educationbug.org/a/year-round-school-statistics.html ). With the ongoing rise of year-round schools, they’re the step to a modern education.
