Kids need to go to school year round, I don't think MORE school is ever a bad thing.

How long kids need to attend school is really a function of the quality of the school and the involvement of the parents. In this case they probably ought to attend 365 days a year for about 25 years. Most of the yes votes are probably working parents without babysitters. The America I grew up in didn't require two working parents just to survive.

When I went to school it was always after Labor Day. Of course that was a long time ago, up north, where schools didn't have air conditioning.

Year round school will solve this dilemma.

Year around school hasn't been as successful as once thought. The success of any school still depends on the parents and quality of administration, not teachers. Teachers can be fired and teachers can be made better when there are "Good" administrators running schools. Good administrators will help mediocre teachers become great and have the backbone to get rid of the ones that never perform.
