The Many Faces of Year-Round Education.
Jensen, George M.
Year-round programs allow students to enter and progress through school at their own pace, eliminate the long 3-month forgetting period, cut down on the number and duration of failures, reduce students' summer boredom, multiply students' job opportunities, and enhance the holding power of schools at the secondary level. These programs also make it possible to offer teachers the type and duration of employment best suited to their individual needs and preferences. Year-round programs can be designed to ensure that all children in a family will be on vacation at the same time, thus enhancing family vacation options rather than restricting them. Another beneficial side effect of a year-round school program is the reduction of summer vacation "people pressure." (Author/MLF)
