A Twelve Month Contract for a Continuous Learning Year Program.
Thomas, George I.
The rescheduled school year is suggested as a means by which teaching and learning can be made much more attractive to the student, the teacher, and the taxpayer. The author cites the tremendous explosion of knowledge, the loss of learning from extended vacations, and the time spent tooling up and down for school as reasons why student attendance should be based on a 200-210 day school calendar in which students attend school in rotating shifts throughout the year. According to the author, a rescheduled school year would provide teachers with greater flexibility in class scheduling, thereby allowing more time for planning and curriculum development and, with schools in operation 12 months a year, teachers could expect appropriate salary increase adjustments.
