This is an essay I did for computer class. Everybody had to choose a different topic to write a essay about. My topic for my essay is Should the school year have a summer vacation? My teacher John told me to post my essay on my blog. Please read my essay and leave your comments.
Should the school year have a summer vacation? The answer is yes the school year should have a summer vacation. There are many reasons why the school year should have a summer vacation. Ten out of Twelve months kids are working hard and studying all the time. They need a break from school. If the school has no Air Conditioning no student or teacher wants to be in a hot building if there is summer school. Teachers work hard teaching kids, grading their work and coming up with lesson plans.
Out of all the reasons there should be a summer vacation, the first that comes to mind is vacation itself! During the summer kids need a long break to enjoy themselves. Out of the Twelve months in a year kids go to school for Ten of them. They are working hard and they spend most of their time studying at home, in school, or at the library. There are students out there that actually come to school five out of seven days in a week. Kids go to school that way they can learn new things and study hard for a test. Students spend a lot of time doing homework that way they can turn their work in on time. If kids don’t get a break from school they could get really tired and their grades could slip.
Another reason why the school year should have a summer vacation is because the building can get hot during the summer. If the school doesn’t have any air conditioning students don’t want to be in a hot room during the summer. There are some schools that don’t have any air conditioning at all. Even if the student comes to school every day and does their work he or she could get really hot. When I was a teenager, back in my old high school there was no air conditioning in any of the rooms. Only the computer labs and the main office had air conditioning. It was really hot in all the other class rooms, including the gym. I was so glad that I had good grades and I never went to summer school.
Another reason why the school year should have a summer vacation is teachers work hard. Every day teachers teach their students new things and come up with lesson plans. They also spend a lot of time grading projects, test papers, and homework. Depending on how many students there are either in the class or do the work it could take a while to grade all the work. Teachers should have the same summer vacation just like their students because they deserve a nice long break from all the hard work.
In conclusion, the school year should have a summer vacation. Students work hard and there are students that actually do their work and come to school every day. If a student ends up in summer school he or she doesn’t want to be in a very hot room with no air conditioning. Also teachers need time off from all the hard work they put in through out the whole school year.
