Should Students Be Given Schoolwork Over Summer?

Over Summer break, most kids enjoy the time that they have off from school. This includes no homework, classwork, projects, and much more. However, every year, we have to do a book project over our short break. This means that we must read a whole book and do a report on it over the summer!

 

Clearly, no one wants to do this, but should we really have to? In my opinion, we should not be required in doing this. Although we shouldn’t be required to do this project, if it really is necessary to be assigned, then maybe it could just be for some extra credit. This is mainly because we work hard all day at school for 180 days, so we should be rewarded with a ‘no work summer’. Some may disagree, saying that we should have to read a book over summer, or do work to keep our minds stimulated. But, I highly disagree with this statement due to the fact that our break is only about 2 months, and it gets shorter and shorter every year. In the end, our summer should be fun and without work.
