Dear Readers,

Please check out our new Opinion Poll on whether small or large schools are better, and cast your vote by the end of July 2018. As you know …

your opinion counts

Our June 2018 poll was about whether schools should stay open during summer:

Should schools be open all year round, with no summer break?

Yes. During summer breaks children often forget a lot of what they learnt. Instead schools can give short breaks throughout the year, instead of a long break during summer. (11%, 5 Votes)

No. Summer vacation is necessary, because it allows children to relax after working hard all year round. (89%, 42 Votes)

Most of the respondents voted to keep the long summer break. The majority of the voters (89%) felt that summer vacations are necessary because they allow children to take a long break from academics. Only 11% of the voters felt that schools should stay open throughout the year, because children forget what they have learnt after a long break.
