I am currently a student in high school so this issue is important to me. My school is based on a traditional calendar, but I feel year round calendars would help students retain knowledge from year to year. (And that could be one of the reasons why North Carolina has one of the WORSE education systems in the U.S. This year round calendar would also help in low income areas so that students do not get into trouble during the long summer days that become unedifying towards the end of July and August. I hope you consider this as an important and consider my opinion.
