Days Off In School

Many students argue for more day-offs and breaks throughout the school year. However, some teachers argue for more school hours.


Students have to go five days a week for almost seven hours straight and rarely get a break from the work. After school, you are surrounded by missing assignments, homework, and projects, and still have to fit in with what you have to do after school.


For example, many students do a club or a sport after school, and it can be difficult to find time for school and sports. More days off can help students have more time to relax.


Although we have thanksgiving, winter, and spring break, three-day weekends are usually more effective for making up work. I usually end up with endless amounts of homework after school, and I would appreciate if teachers lessened the amount of work or gave us more time to work on it.
