The Implications of the 45-15 Calendar for Changing Family Life Patterns.
Probinsky, Jean
In this speech, the author attempts to determine the effect of the 45-15 calendar on changing family life patterns. Sixty families, whose children had been attending school under the 45-15 plan for two years, were randomly surveyed. The primary conclusion of the interview survey was that parents perceive year-round education to have only a minor impact on the social, religious, economic, family life style, and health activities of their families. The majority of parents polled perceived changes in vacation plans, better education, and increased exuberance of children for school attendance as the greatest products of year-round education. Increased costs for recreational and vacation activities and school clothes, and the boredom of children during the 15-day period off were the greatest negative results perceived.
