I'm not an advocate of year-round school. In fact, I think we already have too much, but that's another story for another time. On the other hand, reading on here that most of you will be "heading back" to work/school soon, if not already, I really like the fact that I teach year-round. Let me qualify that and ask a question. As I've put on here before, we get two weeks off after every quarter, which means we get two weeks OUT of the prison in September, December (Christmas-New Year time), March and June. In other words, two weeks off every season of the year, total of 8 weeks, holidays and 4 personal days. While this volume of time off isn't as great as when I had summers off like you all do, I much PREFER it over summers off! For one, that's just too much time away. For two, I literally HATE hot weather. It would be OK if I lived by an ocean or in a more moderate climate (Ohio's summers suck)! There's many other reasons I prefer this to over summers off. I guess I ask would you like this or prefer your summers off?
