TRC Website Opinion Poll July 2018

Category: TRC News

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)

Result:
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.
