It affects family time because now we are getting less time to go on vacation and to do fun things together. Which can cause many family problems, whether it be not getting along or not being as social with each other.

This could be a big help to many schools around the world if they use this program.

In conclusion, whether you decide to go school year round or stick with a traditional schedule, you with always have advantages and disadvantages. The advantages and disadvantages will be different for which every one you decide to pick. You do need to decide which one by what fits you and your family best. In my opinion, i think that school year round would be better for everyone. My reasoning is that many kids do forget what they learned over the long breaks and with the breaks being shorter you won´t have to worry. If you had to chose what would you
