What we neglect to remember is twenty six thousand students per year will leave school with no qualification and one in six, seventy five thousand fifteen year olds will have insignificant literacy skills (Education failure 2006). Many will seek employment and find jobs, but will not be able to attain the job because they lack the essential skills they need. They will feel the education system has failed them leaving them defeated and disappointed. These children come from all different background, low income families, single parent families, some ethnic groups, live in disadvantage areas, children who have special educational needs and children who are in care.
Because of this, there are many first and last days of school. All those transitions disrupt the learning process, and decrease the amount of days that students are actually learning. Also, there is no evidence to suggest that students of year round systems have higher test scores. School boards who have switched to a year-round model have not reported any significant increase in grades or graduation rates.
