When I was in school it seemed like there was a lot of time that passed between school break to school break, but know that my son is in school it seems like there is a school break every other week. Don't get me wrong...I love spending time with my family on Christmas and I think a few extra days off is a great idea, but why do our kids need almost 2 full weeks off for 24 hours of holiday? I feel like they could be learning so much during this time. On the other side of things maybe this time off is needed to keep the kids engaged and focused. What do you think?
