CIRCLEVILLE – Some States have put into practice year round schools, with opinions that kids regress over the summer months. Some Lawmakers have put this into practice.
Some year round schools are not what they sound like. Year round schools still have the standard 200 days like Ohio has but they redistribute them with breaks of 3 or 4 weeks vs 3 or 4 months in the summer. According to Wikipedia the results of year round learning thought to be positive, has actually proven to be the same.
