Should Twin Falls Have Year-Round School? [poll]

We’re barely four weeks into summer vacation and I hear it already.  “I’m bored.”  I wonder if you shudder just as much as I do when you hear your kids complain that there’s nothing to do.  Now… Before you get all “get off your lazy rear and get a summer job” on me, let’s stop and really think about this for a minute.  Are summer jobs the answer or do we need to consider a year-round school system?

I’m not saying that’s the answer, either.  I honestly don’t know.  I do know a handful of teachers that consistently tell me they spend almost the entire first quarter of each school year playing catch-up from the summer because kids tend to forget what they learned over the summer.

There’s a lot to consider:  How much would it cost?  How about teachers that use summer as an opportunity to work a second job to help supplement low pay?

Here’s what you had to say on the Morning Show today:
