Should Kids Have A Longer Summer Vacation?

I saw all of the kids out waiting for the school buses this morning as it is the first day of school for Hollidaysburg students. But, now that summer break is over or about to be over, and your kids are someone else’s problem five days a week again, let’s talk about how we’d WANT their summers to go in the future. A new survey asked parents about how long they think summer break should be . . . and believe it or not, the most popular answer was that it should be LONGER. 41% of parents say it should be at least three months, and another 28% say it should definitely be over two. On the other side of things, 5% of parents think one month is enough . . . and 13% say we should just ABOLISH summer vacation altogether.
